What happened “behind the curtain,” in the world of theatre, in post-war communist Hungary? Why did so many artists commit suicide, leave their profession even their homeland? One of the victims of this era was the father of the film’s director, the renowned Hungarian theatre director, Geza Partos. Seven years after his death, his daughter is attempting to get to the truth; the real reason for her parents’ brave decision to defect to England, leaving their whole life behind.
