Based on the acclaimed short story "Homecoming" by Gábor T. Szántó

"On a summer day in 1945, an Orthodox man and his grown son return to a village in Hungary while the villagers prepare for
the wedding of the town clerk's son. The townspeople – suspicious, remorseful, fearful, and cunning – expect the worst and
behave accordingly. The town clerk fears the men may be heirs of the village's deported Jews and expects them to demand
their illegally acquired property back.
Director Ferenc Török paints a complex picture of a society trying to come to terms with the recent horrors they’ve
experienced, perpetrated, or just tolerated for personal gain. A superb ensemble cast, lustrous black and white
cinematography, and historically detailed art direction contribute to an eloquent drama that reiterates Thomas Wolfe’s famed
sentiment: you can’t go home again. " Menemsha Films, Inc.
