Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Adapted from playwright Andreea Valean's popular stage drama, If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle tells the story of Romanian juvenile delinquent Silviu (George Pistereanu), who is serving time in a youth detention center when he learns that his mother plans on moving to Italy with his younger brother, whom he had raised since childhood. With just five days of his sentence left to serve, Silviu grows increasingly desperate to prevent his mother from absconding with his sibling, and finds himself drawn to a pretty social worker named Ana (Ada Condeescu). Eventually, Silviu's desperation grows too powerful to suppress, and he kidnaps Ana in a reckless bid to find his brother before it's too late.
