Storyline

As Hungary's political climate becomes increasingly radicalized, Virág, a former green politician, loses faith in the pretend-to-be democratic parliament of Hungary and retires from politics. She and her musician partner Nóra decide to adopt a child and focus on building a family together. With a sensitive lens and close access, directors Asia Dér and Sári Haragonics follow the two women through their long and ultimately successful adoption process to bring home their young daughter. But tensions begin to rise between the two as Virág thrives in her role as a mother and Nóra struggles to find her place within the family. As the rising tides of right wing propaganda in Hungary begin to overflow into their family, their lives hit a boiling point and they must face the difficult decision of whether to leave their country behind.

Touching story of two mothers hardship
27 March 2021 | by patriktakacSee all my reviews

Let me say, that this documentary recieved a lot of controversy in Hungary. Mainly because it shows how the system really works there, how "the party" wants to control every aspect of your life from what appears in the media to the point who you should or should not be together. In the middle of all this are two women, who just wants to make a family. But making a family like this is not approved by "the party".

The movie is touching, theres a lot of realness and shows the life of a lesbian couple in Hungary. Sadly theres no happy ending for them in that country.

Worth watching.
