This short film is about a Ukrainian refugee who escapes her war-torn country and starts a new life in Budapest, Hungary. The fact that she is a pregnant gypsy woman does not make her transition easy.

Her host is a kind pediatrician, whose life becomes extremely complicated since he lives with his father who hates gypsies and does not want this woman in their house.

The film explores the difficulties of being a refugee and also deals with racism and acceptance. The drama is heightened with a father-son conflict which will affect the pregnant woman’s fate.

Directed by Jeno Hodi (Hungary)
