Petru is a math professor at the Politechnic Univesity. He is in an open relationship with Irina, who agreed that he can sleep with other women from time to time, but he wants to break up with her because he can’t achieve an orgasm when they are having sex. One day Irina finds out she is pregnant. Petru curiously changes his mind and decides he wants to commit to Irina, but she doesn’t feel very convinced about his intentions. In the meantime, Petru meets Sinziana, a girl he has to tutor for the math exam at the Politechnics.
