About

As Hungary’s political climate becomes increasingly radicalized, Virág, a former green politician, loses faith in the democratic parliament of Hungary, retires from politics and dicedes to focus on buiding a family. Virág, together with her musician partner Nóra, decides to adopt, but this is not allowed for same-sex families in Hungary. With a sensitive lens and close access the documentary monitors all the challenges a couple faces in the process of adoption and changing roles in the family with the emergence of a daughter. In the background, the escalating right-wing propaganda heard from radio and television is a reminder that the lives, rights and personal relationships of Virág and Nóra are under constant threat.
