Focus on Hungarian Cinema

"In the 1950s, Mária fled Communist Hungary. Now an obstinately independent old woman living back in Budapest, she has fallen ill, and her daughter Olga has come to care for her. Olga, who suspects that her mother's past contains long-buried secrets, begins to piece together their shared hidden history." (Chicago Film Fest) 

"Well known Hungarian actress Mari Törőcsik plays Mária, an elderly lady living in a village. When she receives a letter with news from the past, the shock puts her into a coma. Her daughter Olga (Ildikó Tóth), who works in Vienna as a lawyer, hurries back home to take care of Mária. Following a series of events, Olga comes to understand that almost everything she knew about her family's past has been a lie." (Cineuropa)
