Seemingly on a whim, the rebellious Bianka kidnaps a baby from a park in Budapest. Shortly after, she meets the quiet, slow Laci, whose uncle is exploiting him as a wage laborer. The odd duo poses as the biological parents and try to take off in a stolen caravan. They practice family life incognito, but their playing with fire threatens to fail. In his directing debut, László Csuja shows the relationship of two people on the helpless quest for security. With its amateur actors, it begs for further scrutiny. (AB)

On a building wall, the silhouette of a smaller house can be seen. Another wall disappears, except for one beam of light seen in the dark. While catching the light with a camera, filmmakers have been interested in shadow for 120 years as well. Some have made them the protagonists of their films. After our exploration through film history, the projector light becomes our lamp, the cinema becomes our film workshop. The little and big film goers make a city with shadow itself and create a new, original film in the cinema itself.
