Based on the internationally best-selling novel by the same name, director Eva Gardos reimagines the dark side of pre-war Hungary. When an unnamed Jewish woman is found dead, rogue reporter Zsigmond relies on the help of a dynamic cast of characters that make up the underside of Budapest. Things become complicated when Zsigmond’s ex-lover re-enters the scene. Drawing on the complexities of Hungarian life in pre-war Europe, taking us from brothels to boxing rings and gangsters to politicians, Gardos brings Budapest to life in this classically-styled noir film.
