    • Synopsis
    • Six teenagers between 15 and 18 years of age are sentenced to 8 to 15 years in prison for murder. They are at the height of suffering and are sent to hell, to the prison of Tököl in northern Hungary, during the communist era. When they are released, the wall has fallen, they are “free”. But how can one survive with this legacy of suffering? In 1984, they were listened to and filmed, though not judged, by Monory-Mész András whose impartial view on them has incredible strength. 27 years later, I wish to let them express themselves. My country seen through the eyes of the Cain’s children, a voyage (or simply a life) in hell.
