This movie is based on a true story. The novel was written by Zsigmond Móricz in 1941. He found a 10 years old little girl standing on the edge of the bridge of liberty in the downtown of Budapest. The little orphan wanted to be suicide. The writer took her with himself and treated her in the rest of his life as if the girl were his own daughter. The little orphan was talking a lot about her cruel life which inspired Móricz to write the novel this movie is based on. The story the girl told was more or less the same that can be seen on this movie... Dalkó Diána (firstname.lastname@example.org) above here describes it very well I think.
