Luke and Leia, without all the stars and wars

During a dinner party, Sasha Anghelescu drops a bombshell on her siblings: Working as a medical doctor during the Ceausescu regime, their father Victor reported several women who came to him seeking abortions to the authorities. The revelations have a dramatic impact on the family – especially for Sasha, who is carrying the child of her twin brother Romeo and is determined not to give birth to it. Commenting on both modern day and communist era Romania, ILLEGITIMATE is a provocative take on fundamental questions.
