Synopsis

Drama set in 1987 around an abandoned agricultural machinery plant in the vast Hungarian plain, where an assortment of deadbeats (including three couples and an alcoholic doctor) eke out a hopeless existence. Each is planning some kind of escape. Charismatic Irimias sweeps into town and promises a new life to those willing to chance an exodus to other parts. The action depicts the same events from different characters' perspectives.
