Zsolt Balogh is a very lonely 12 year-old boy. He lives with his grandmother, Bizsu. The old lady,
now bed-ridden, was once a famous primadonna but has now completely shut herself off from
the world in her darkened room. She is an alcoholic and needs a considerable quantity of drink
just to get through the day. She sees no one apart from her grandson. They live in a block of
flats in one of the most run-down areas of Budapest on the banks of the Danube. Zsolt’s
mother, who left the country as a dissident, sends a very small of money each month so that he
can somehow live. The boy spends his time wandering around from secret place to secret
place on the Danube…
