SYNOPSIS

S. Sz had been preparing for months to flee. He drifted for four hours in the ice-cold water of the River Szamos, his arrival in Hungary was something straight out of action movie. He was lucky not to drown not to freeze and not to be shot to death. In fact he was even joined by his family later. A.H. and his wife had to lie in court, claiming one of them committed adultery so that they would be granted a divorce. For years they walked past each other like strangers, so that all doubt would be erased in the small town they lived in. Our film’s protagonist were born Hungarian outside hungary’s current borders. They resettled in Hungary between 1980 and 1991, hoping to find better and freer life in the mother country.
