1943, World War II. István Semetka is a simple Hungarian farmer who serves as a Sub-Lieutenant in a special unit scouting for partisan groups. On their way to a remote village, his company falls under enemy fire. As the commander is killed, Semetka must overcome his fears and guide the survivors back to an occupied village. These few chaotic days portray the moral dilemmas and efforts to stay human of simple people forced into war. Dénes Nagy received best director award at Berlin Film Festival.

"Mature and powerful debut on a complex theme. Director Dénes Nagy focuses his camera on the main character and while using minimal tools uncovers the deepest confusion of a man who must stay focused and make the right decision at every turn. How does one preserve their sense of right while fulfilling their duty?" (Mantė Valiūnaitė)
