Description

In post-World War II Hungary, 16-year old Klara is holding onto hope that her parents will return to her. When she meets Aldo, a survivor living a solitary life, they provide each other with some of the warmth and compassion that disappeared with the war. But as the Soviet Empire rises to power in Hungary, their pure and loving father-daughter relationship is misunderstood and frowned upon. A lyrical story of loss, trauma, and the healing power of love, through the eyes of a young girl.

 

Followed by a conversation with Filmmaker Barnabas Tóth
