On August 12th 1945, two orthodox Jews arrive at the train station in a small village in Hungary. With them, they have some strange crates drawn by horses. Little did the inhabitants know what was install for them, but they assumed the worst. During World War II, the Jews in the village were deported and had to leave all their belongings behind. The rest of the inhabitants exploited this and stole the remains. Who are they? Was revenge the reason for returning? To re-claim what was rightfully theirs? This is the moving and intelligent story of collective guilt depicted in many ways. Director Ferenc Török delivers a contrasting and refreshing representation of the post–war cruelties that emerged, filmed by the veteran photographer Elemer Ragalyi (Anne Frank: The Whole Story, 2001) and beautifully portrayed in black and white.
