Áron is dumped by his girlfriend just as he is about to turn thirty. He feels as though he needs to completely remake a life for himself. If before, as a couple, it seemed all right to live from day to day without a steady job, now all of a sudden things have changed and the idea of going abroad is no longer just a hypothesis. Oppressed by these thoughts, by the obsessive memory of his ex-girlfriend and by the anxiety of his omnipresent mother, Áron, behind his parents’ back, makes a reservation to go to Portugal, thanks to their credit card and the false courage that comes from a bottle. But before leaving he meets a person: an encounter that could be decisive. Too bad it might not be so simple to see that person again.

“I wanted to make a film that not only reacts to the current agonies of living in Hungary, but occasionally shows people of Budapest in a completely documentaristic way, in order to reflect to the lives and problems of the local middle class. Despite the documentaristic approach, the main storyline is purely fictional, with directed scenes, and the situations within will be familiar to anyone from everyday life.”
