The calm before the storm

The year is 1913 and the place is Budapest. Young Irisz Leiter arrives with the hopes of taking a job in the hat shop that once belonged to her parents, but despite her familial connection, the new owner sends her on her way. However, when she is approached by a strange man looking for a certain Kálmán Leiter, she sets out on a dangerous and eye-opening hunt for answers regarding her family and her own past. The follow-up to László Nemes’ astounding debut SON OF SAUL, SUNSET is a thrilling period drama about a society on the verge of collapse.
