In the small Romanian town of Deva, Kato, a teen girl living in an orphanage, gets electrocuted while drying her hair. This apparently banal event will completely turn things upside down around her. The orphanage is invaded by electricians, and a new volunteer, Bogi is hired to help restoring the order. Kato will become infatuated by her to the point of reconsidering the way she views her world.
In 2005 I met a 3-year-old albino girl in a children’s home in Deva, who told me that she was born in a cemetery. I tried to understand this sentence. We became friends and I kept visiting her. She inspired the story. We shot the film in the same house where I met her, and I used a lot of elements in the film that mean a lot to me. Deva is a film about the transitional state between childhood and young adulthood and the strangeness and ambiguity of this age.
