    • Synopsis
    • Who hasn’t felt at a given moment at some point during their shorter or longer life that they wanted to step out of their usual environment. To hide away from the world. To escape from the past, themselves and the present. To disappear from the face of the earth. This moment has arrived in the life of Bulcsú aged twenty something.
      This film is a special mixture of tale and reality, down below, under the ground. The story is about a strange young man, Bulcsú, his fellow inspectors, who are all without exception likeable characters, a rival ticket inspection team, and racing along the tracks…
      …and perhaps about love and starting anew.
      It is about the dramatic but mostly comical relationships between passengers and ticket inspectors everybody is familiar with. It is about the management of the underground company, for whom people’s faith vested in the underground is more important than anything else and they are willing to do anything to keep it. It is about a character, Roadrunner, who appears now and again and who considers himself a member of the Passengers Liberation Society, and keeps spraying inspectors who then start chasing him in heated excitement down the corridors, platforms, elevators, but of course all in vain. Although once…
      And there is Béla, the fallen engine driver, who feels just as much at home in the world of outcasts as Bulcsú. And there is Szofi, his daughter, who Bulcsú immediately falls in love with, even though the ”Miss Right” is dressed in a bear costume. But there is a Shadowy figure among them, a murderous machine. Nobody knows who he is. Perhaps only Bulcsú does.
      In the end, a scene comes that is all too familar from western films: the final battle that decides all. Between Good and Evil.
