Delia Fratila, an eighteen-year-old girl from a small Romanian town, is the lucky winner of a beverage company's promotional campaign: with only three juice labels, she won an expensive car. The happy girl, accompanied by her parents, has to come down to the capital in order to shoot a testimonial video – an advertising spot showing Delia to the whole country as proof that the refreshments company keeps its promises. On their way to Bucharest, a family conflict arises: the parents want to sell the new car and to start a small business, while the girl would like to keep the car. Many problems arise on the shooting set as well, but in the end everyone is happy. Or at least, they all seem happy with what they've got.
