1913, Budapest. The young Irisz Leiter (Juli Jakab) arrives in the city with high hopes to work at the legendary hat store that once belonged to her late parents. After she is sent away by the new owner, a man abruptly comes to Irisz, looking for someone by the name of Kálmán Leiter. Refusing to leave the city, Irisz follows Kálmán’s tracks, her only link to a lost past. Her quest brings her through the dark streets of the Hungarian capital, where only the Leiter hat store shines, into the turmoil of a civilisation on the eve of its downfall...
László Nemes (Son of Saul) returns with an exquisitely framed and deliciously cryptic historical drama that foreshadows the horrors of war.
