PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2009.
The life of Gábor, a middle-aged man with the manners and naiveté of a child, is turned upside down when his mother is killed in a botched bank robbery. He and a prostitute, Joli, are the only ones who would be able to identify the robber, so they must run for their lives.
Armed with a chandelier as a present for Grandma, the odd pair set out on a cross border journey to seek shelter in Grandma's house in Serbia. But Grandma, long dead, had lived on only in Gábor's imagination and meticulous drawings. While the pair try to fit in the village, the robber who is relentlessly after them, finds an unwitting ally in the local police.
Balancing between crude reality and imagination, the two manage to survive and, in the process, find peace with each other, the world, and, most difficult of all - themselves.
