A beautiful summers’ day in August 1945. While a drug store owner prepares his son’s wedding reception, the bride-to-be is having one last flirt with her secret lover. As the signal engineer switches the points the carriages await the passengers. Two mysterious strangers dressed in black get off the arriving train. They are father and son, both survivors of the Holocaust. Everything is about to change in this small village and what was once suppressed and almost forgotten, suddenly rises to the surface again… Without a trace of folklorism, Ferenc Török sketches a web of guilt and atonement. Atmospherically akin to Haneke’s THE WHITE RIBBON, 1945 etches the intriguingly sober image of a Hungarian village on the mirror of society’s failings.
