A man finds himself wandering the back roads of Transylvania with his son and his father in this offbeat comedy. Geza (Peter Rudolf) is a musician who had just added another name to his list of ex-wives when his spouse tells him that they're though, forcing him to take up residence in his car. Geza has a son in his twenties, Andris (Milan Schruff), who becomes his traveling companion when he has to take an unexpected trip to Transylvania after getting an urgent call from his father Istvan (Peter Haumann). Geza learns that his elderly mother (Judit Pogany) has begun slipping into senile dementia, and Istvan no longer has the nerve to be around her; while Geza thinks his dad should stick by his wife, Andris has other ideas, and soon the three men hit the road together. With Geza homeless, Istvan running away from his better half and Andris afraid to confront his live-in girlfriend after gambling away her money, three generations of the same family set out on a road trip with no particular destination, no fixed schedule and a very low budget. Kalandorok (aka Adventurers) was the first feature film from director Bela Paczolay, who earned the prize for best debuting filmmaker at the 2008 Hungarian Film Week.
