At the beginning of the 1990s, not long after the change in regime, a miracle occurs in a tiny sleepy Hungarian village with the arrival of Mario, the elegant Italian shoe manufacturer. He promises jobs and wellbeing to the local women, setting the village in motion. Vera cannot resist the charisma of the Italian either. She becomes more and more enchanted by the man's special charm. And she feels the Italian is not indifferent to her either. She dreams obsessively about a better life at Mario's side.
