The scene where Áron tries to speak with his mom on the phone, but can't reach her and goes through the whole city and several festivals, etc. was not actually made for the movie. It was supposed to be a short film about a boy who gets orders from his mother like ,,take out the trash", ,,do the dishes", ,,don't forget to eat your dinner", etc. Later during the making of the movie the director decided to use the shots for his first film.

Here you'll find a great testimony of a 29-year old and his group of friends: Budapest people that could be any of us. The main character, Aron is after university, after a break-up and before knowing what he'd really like to do with his life.
While couple scenes are set in Lisbon, Portugal the movie really is about Budapest featuring popular pubs, restaurants, well-known streets and squares, the atmosphere of the Budapest night and the life and thoughts of close-to-30 and little-after-30 guys.
Have your calculator ready for counting how's the salary of the guys in euro/usd or any well-known currency and have your ears ready for Hungarian language. After the movie you won't mix up Bucharest with Budapest, guaranteed!
