Synopsis :


As Hungary’s political climate becomes increasingly radicalized, Virág, a former green politician, loses faith in the pretend-to-be democratic parliament of Hungary and retires from politics. She and her musician partner, Nóra, decide to adopt a child and focus on building a family together. We follow the two women through their long and ultimately successful adoption process to bring home their young daughter. But tensions begin to rise between the two, as Virág thrives in her role as a mother, and Nóra struggles to find her place within the family. 

As the rising tides of right wing propaganda in Hungary begin to overflow into their family, their lives hit a boiling point and they must face the difficult decision of whether to leave their country behind. A film that breaks the same-sex marriage and family stigma.
