Synopsis

As Hungary's political climate becomes increasingly radicalized, Virag, a former green politician, loses faith in the pretend-to-be democratic parliament of Hungary and retires from politics. She and her musician partner Nora decide to adopt a child and focus on building a family together. With a sensitive lens and close access, directors Asia Der and Sari Haragonics follow the two women through their long and ultimately successful adoption process to bring home their young daughter of Roma origin.

But tensions begin to rise between the two as Virag thrives in her role as a mother and Nora struggles to find her place within the family. As the rising tides of hate and homophobia in Hungary begin to overflow into their family, their lives hit a boiling point and they must face the difficult decision of whether to leave their country behind.
