Dragoș is returning from abroad to visit Vlad, his little brother who is celebrating his eighteen birthday. Not wanting
to stay long, Dragoș will embark with Vlad in a journey of rediscoveries – his old neighborhood, Vampire, the lost
childhood friend and the many things unsaid between them, Mari, an unfulfilled love and Alexander, a former
sportsman who is waiting for a kidney transplant. “Almost Heroes” is an urban drama with a strong coming of age
element, a story split in chapters and a generational portrait of the young Romanians born after 1990.
