A young Hungarian girl struggles to find her place in the world when she's reunited with her parents in the USA years after she was left behind during their flight from the communist country in the 1950s.
The movie is based on the true life story of writer and director of the film, Éva Gárdos.
Do you know what your father and I had to go through...
Suzanne - at 15: Yeah, I know, you- you walked 20 kilometers and you- you climbed under barbed wire, right? Yeah, I know.
Margit: You don't know anything.
Much of the traditional rural background music, including the music over the credits, is not of Hungarian origin at all.
After the film is a black and white picture of Éva Gárdos with her parents circa 1955.
