For twenty years, the Enache family - nine children and their parents - lived remotely in the nature of the Bucharest Delta: an abandoned water reservoir that forms one of the largest urban nature reserves in the world. When the authorities decide to reclaim this rare urban ecosystem, the Enache family is evicted and told to resettle in the city. As a result of the state's reinterpretation of living space, the Enache family is now caught between problematic notions of adaptation and integration and the ambivalence between individual freedom and the possibilities that come with belonging to an urban society for the first time.

Radu Ciorniciuc is co-founder of the first independent media organisation in Romania, Casa Jurnalistului. He works as a writer and investigative journalist, focusing on human rights, animal welfare and environmental issues. For ACASĂ, MY HOME he received the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Cinematography at Sundance.
