POPPY FIELD by Eugen Jebeleanu 

Cristi a young gendarme from Bucharest keeps his homosexuality secret, since it is a stigma among military ranks. He is in a long-term relationship with Hadi, who lives in another city. The same day Hadi comes to visit him for a few days, Cristi is called in for an intervention at a movie theatre, where an ultra-nationalist, homophobic group has sabotaged the screening of a queer film. When one of the protesters recognises Cristi and threatens to disclose the secret about his sexuality, Cristi is faced with the danger of losing everything he has.
