This Hungarian slice-of-life drama follows a small group of aspiring filmmakers as they unsuccessfully try to shoot their movie on the streets of Budapest. The main protagonist is Szabolcs Hajdu who has just come from the outer provinces to Budapest after flunking his exams. He wants to be an actor and brings along his video-taped high school performance of Hamlet. He goes to the home of his pretty, but aging aunt and her family. There he finds himself starring in a no budget video-movie. They shoot the film illegally on the Budapest streets. The production is doomed, but before it folds Hajdu has an affair with his aunt.
