Radu works occasionally as a fixer for European media, dreaming of becoming a journalist. Given the opportunity to work for French television on a story about juvenile prostitution, he tries to prove his abilities by pushing things to the limit of professional ethics. When meeting Anca, an underage prostitute, he becomes aware of his abusive attitude.
(Note: this is not related to Bernard Malamud's The Fixer.)
When a human trafficking story breaks in France, a TV crew wants to interview the underage girl at the heart of the sex scandal, who has returned to her native Romania.
The titular "Fixer" is the local Romanian man who helps the TV crew get the interview. The obstacles are many: the obstinate nun who refuses them access to the girl; local mobsters who want to intimidate her into silence; and so on. As the film progresses, the French TV crew appear increasingly exploitative themselves, going too far for the Fixer, no saint himself. By the end of the movie, the only really likable person is the obstinate nun.
