Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

One of the problems with this drama lies in its title; "Eskimo" is pejorative, "Inuit" is preferred. Aside from this minor point, director (Janos Xantus) does not have a clear-cut storyline to guide his characters through their inevitable encounters with fate, but he does guide them in style. Mari (Marietta Mehes) is married to Janos (Andor Lukats), a deaf-mute, but is courted by Laci (Boguslaw Linda), a concert pianist who has fallen in love with her. Laci gives up his career to focus on Mari's own ambitions to become a rock singer, and between the two of them, Janos is rather exploited for their own aims. Eventually, the most unstable member of the trio proves to harbor murderous anger when pushed too far.
