On August 16, 1958 two Hungarian immigrants broke into the Hungarian embassy in Bern and took the ambassador hostage. As the Swiss police surrounds the building and a group of Hungarian immigrants shows up on the street to demonstrate, a tense, twist-filled hostage drama plays out behind the closed doors of the embassy. Based on a true story about the aftermath of the 1956 Hungarian revolution.
