Podul de Piatra is a Romanian song that goes as follows:

The stone bridge collapsed
The water came and took it away.
We'll build another one over the river, downstream,
One that is stronger and more beautiful!
We'll build another one over the river, downstream,
One that is stronger and more beautiful!

Podul de Piatra is also the title of a night film. The night sounds before its arrival. An animal starts to breathe and a lamp turns on. The animal is a horse. A mare. It has just given birth. The newborn foal is wrapped in a semi-transparent sac and it appears to be struggling to break out. It turns over. It needs to break through in order to come out into the world. Angelica observes the scene in silence.
Angelica is a Romanian woman living in the village of Franja de Poniente and working at some stables. The Romanian song is coming from the television in her home, but the signal is distorted. Her husband will try and move the aerial to avoid interferences, but he will not be successful. This alteration affects Angelica and the entire film.
