The police hire a convicted bank robber to crack the Ministry of Interior's vault during the final days of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. But what they find inside is quite different from what they were expecting.
Would you believe in a policewoman who suffers from such serious panic disorders that she is afraid to get close to any crime scene and has been on permanent office duty for more than a decade? Would you believe a lone mother who is unfit to pay her mortgage and also raise her rebellious teenage daughter? Indeed, no one believes that the troubled ex-detective has discovered a serial murder case. Personal dramas and a murder mystery unfold in present-day Budapest, where demonstrations are part of the pre-election life of a city still trying to cope with the shadows of its historical and recent past. It is a city where nothing seems honest and true, except through the eyes of an emotionally unstable policewoman and her misfit daughter who wants to know who her father truly was.
This is the best Hungarian thriller I've seen so far. The acting is overall great, especially the lead actor, who brilliantly portrays a single mother working against a corrupt system. The gastlighting in the movie is so apparent, even those who aren't well-versed in gender studies can see it. Also, the cinematography is on point showing how the world turned upside down. This movie is a dystopia, but it contains social critism as well.
