Some Secrets can’t be buried

On the day of his sons wedding, town clerk Istav, is informed of the arrival by train of a father and son. Whom exactly they are is unclear but the two men are identified as Jewish. Unsettled by their arrival it is revealed that he and many in the community profiteered from the deportation of their Jewish neighbours. Are these strangers here to reclaim the property and goods of deceased relatives? Or to expose the false denouncements of old friends? As the two strangers move silently towards the town, recriminations are rife as those involved buckle and unravel under the weight of their own lies.

Unfolding on a Summers day, 1945 examines collective guilt in a rural Hungarian community.
