In August 1945, a rural town in Hungary is preparing for the wedding of the town clerk’s son. When two Orthodox Jewish men arrive at the railway station with mysterious wooden boxes in tow, the already tense townspeople are alarmed. The town clerk, Istvan, wants to move forward with the wedding, but this is complicated by the bride’s lingering relationship with another man. Others are more concerned about the presence of the two men, and remain fearful that they will try to reclaim the land taken by the townspeople after Jewish deportation during World War II. The town falls into a state of frenzy as they are faced with the crimes of their past.
