In her adventures, she falls in love with Valentin (Rareș Mariș), a tourist who has come to Costinești on holiday with plans to play guitar on the promenade to earn an honest buck. Romina helps Valentin to become a full-fledged artist, and without realizing it, Valentin ends up looking a lot like Gino (Bogdan DLP). Romina and Gino seem to have had something going on at one point, and this makes Valentin jealous. The three are accompanied by a very colourful gang, made up of Narcisa (Cesima Nechifor), Dana (Ana-Maria Guran), Mihai (Costi Max), Pamela (Cristina Pucean), Sebi (Yny Sebi), Bobby (Costel Biju) and Tzancă Uraganu. Will Romina manage to save her father’s terrace and if so, at what cost?
