On a summer day in 1945, an Orthodox man and his grown son return to a village in Hungary, while the villagers are preparing for a wedding. The townspeople – suspicious, remorseful, fearful, and cunning – expect the worst and behave accordingly. The town clerk fears the men may be heirs of the village's deported Jews and will demand their illegally acquired property back. “A fresh, intelligent and cinematic approach to a difficult topic that takes on a transitional time in Hungarian history with subtlety and nuance.” Variety.
