THE DISTRICT is an animated comedy about extraordinary events in a shady district in Budapest.
The kids of the neighbourhood grow up in constant rivalling and fights, as their Gipsy, Hungarian, Arab, and Chinese families engage in everyday hostility.
Richie and Jules fall in love despite the rivalry. They assume that the way to peace is through money, and that the only way to make money is to have oil. So they simply take a timetrip to the prehistoric age to provide their own oil reserves in their dark district!
