Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó and screenwriter Kata Wéber (White God and Pieces of a Woman) return with a powerful and richly cinematic drama tracing the historical trauma of the Second World War through three generations of a family. The film begins with an extraordinary, wordless sequence with dizzying cinematography, probing a surreal memory at the liberation of a concentration camp. Sequences in modern Europe depict a holocaust survivor in Budapest and a young couple involved in an anti-semitic episode in contemporary Berlin as the film follows a trajectory of pain through to a more hopeful future.
