SINOPSIS

The 1956 Revolution has fallen. Terror reigns. Appointed by the Soviet, the new Prime Minister orders that each and every National Defense officer’s loyalty should be tested by new and rigorous directives.

Jung is a super-ambitious cultural defense officer living under the cover of a private teacher. Jung’s so-called conspiracy apartment is a safe place to meet agents and informers on a regular basis. Jung’s task is to gather information and forward it to his superiors. Markó is Jung’s direct superior, and also his only friend. Now, Markó, a war hero and a legend amongst the officers, is ordered to monitor Jung’s apartment and activities for a day according to the Kádár directives, testing his friend’s loyalty to the new regime. The routine surveillance takes a wild turn when Markó uncovers disturbing secrets in Jung’s life. Secrets that can easily destroy the careers of both men.
