This social drama tells the parallel stories of three families in rural Hungary today. The stories of a rich businessman (Árpád, 52) and his wife (Franciska, 33), their daughter (Babita, 9), a photographer (Gábor, 34), his ceramist girlfriend (Edina, 27), and a prison priest (Tibor, 50) unfold on the screen.
Their destinies are intertwined: many of them live or have lived in the same city, and their lives are fundamentally upended by the secrets and crimes that are revealed during the film. The film has an essentially polyphonic structure, with the investigation in the present interrupted by dreams, flashbacks from the past and photographs taken during “confessions” in the photographic studio. The confessions have a dramaturgical and structuring function beyond the psychological level, and help to distinguish between the two timelines: 10 years ago and today.
