A woman's dog throws up on the Bucharest metro. The incident is filmed, the video goes viral, and chaos ensues. Targeting the ills that afflict our networked society (cybershaming, the hunger for 15 minutes of fame or the appeal of kitsch on the news), this is a remarkable social satire which manages to be both merciless and endlessly hilarious.
