Man and Dog.

After a mysterious text message from an unknown number, Doru suddenly leaves his work in Göteborg and returns to his hometown in Romania with a growing load of jealousy on his back. The message claims that his wife is unfaithful and despite the evidence contradicting this he lets his anxiety grow to gigantic proportions and initiates on his own a meticulous investigation.
