András is a successful doctor, but lonely. The Skype calls with his daughter abroad remain distant. His life changes when one day he is called to help. In the mosque next door an old refugee who entered the country illegally has collapsed. He too is lonely.
Day after day of András’s life passes in uniform routine until this call for help gets the symbolic ball rolling. As the old man, fighting for air, is an illegal immigrant, hospitalisation is out of the question. András battles with himself: he is dissociated from the stranger but being a physician he feels obliged to help. Reluctantly, he finally agrees, and the two men have something in common: they have no family. One has lost touch with his nearest and dearest and the other has been separated from them as a result of his escape. So, they ‘understand’ each other in spite of the language barrier. András begins to question his habits and views. This pushes him to turn over a new leaf in his life.
Ambrus Fatér portrays a person’s change of character as an unexpected encounter prompts him to discard his emotional distance towards his environment as well as his resentment towards refugees. ES
