Police, Adjective (Politist, adjectiv)

Cristi is a young police officer, conscientious, laconic, recently married to Anca, a teacher. He's tailing a kid who smokes pot and may be supplying his friends. Cristi dislikes the assignment: the kid's clearly not a dealer, an arrest would ruin his life, and, Cristi assumes that Romania will soon tolerate marijuana. But his superior tells him flatly that the law is the law and to finish the case with a quick arrest.
