Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Director Diana Groó centers her magic realist drama Miracle in Cracow on Peter, a Hungarian Jew who came of age years ago under the guardianship of his grandmother in Budapest. As a child, Peter became acutely aware of the family's rare book collection, stolen by the Nazis during WWII. That collection included a "magic" volume, which his grandmother prized above everything else in the library. Now an adult who sells books for a living, Peter vows to retrieve the enchanted volume at any cost. He indeed finds it, but complications arise when he falls in love with the book's new owner, a mesmerizing young girl. Ezter Biro, Maceiej Adamczyk and Franciszek Pieczka co-star.
