Synopsis: 

Imre and Piroska live an isolated and poor life mining charcoal. Their quiet life is disturbed by the rising numbers of foreign tourists who come to see "real forest people" among other touristic attractions. Between the hard work and pictures with tourists, they dream about winning the lottery with a very personal combination of numbers. Yet, every morning, weather forecasts and the lottery drawing announce the beginning of another hard day.
