If you want to see how things were going on in Hungary in mid-70's, this is a must.
8 November 2000 | by (Budapest) – See all my reviews

A young truck driver transports things for the mid-70' building of the Paks atom reactor center. Picking up a young hitchhiker girl and losing her from his sight in an hour builds up a dream in him of love adventure, pressing him in the danger of losing her girlfriend. The film is about his hesitation and way to decision.
