    • Synopsis
    • The young Eastern European woman Csilla and her little brother Isti are travelling together
      without a clear destination, looking for a better life.
      One day Csilla wakes up inside a crashed car, in the middle of nowhere, not knowing where
      her brother Isti is. He is vanished without a trace. Upset and alone, without saying a word,
      Csilla leaves aboard a cargo ship heading to Western Europe. She flees her country and her
      past to a cold and lonely life to keep a promise she made to him. But the world she's left
      behind won't let her go that easily. At sea Gábor, a self-proclaimed business man who
      convinced her to work for him on the ship, turns out to be a brute and a drunk.
      When Gábor assaults her and takes her last souvenir of Isti, Csilla loses grip on her life
      completely. The journey turns into a surreal trip on the fragile edge of life and death.
