    • Synopsis
    • Katherine, who survived the Holocaust at the age of seven, visits her once left fatherland of Transylvania, Romania for the first time departing from Sweden with her family. Not only the happy and the frightful memories of her once forgotten past come to life, but she also has to face the depressing reality of Ceausescu’s communist dictatorship and the romance developing between her husband and her sister. Parallel to her story and simultaneously we get to know her childhood love and friend Sándor, who serves the dictator as a forester and whose story has a tragic ending. The film ends with the surprising and odd encounter of the two stories.
      Inspired by Marguerite DURAS (Summer Night / Dix heures et demie du soir en été) and Miklós MÉSZÖLY (Chevaux Ailés / Horses on Wings)
