It’s August 1945 − the war is over, and an uneasy, humid stillness pervades a small Hungarian village longing for a return to normalcy.
The young pharmacist prepares to marry; train station workers busy themselves with a changeover; and men huddle in pubs, gruffly drinking away petty disputes. Two strangers arrive—they wear serious, withdrawnexpressions and thick, black clothes. They are father and son; they are Holocaust survivors.
The town eyes them with immediate suspicion: are they here to reclaim stolen land? To open a competing pharmacy? Will they expose the villagers’ wartime crimes and complicit silence?
