First-time director Attila Szász’s political thriller chronicles the day of August 16, 1958, when two Hungarian immigrants (Tamás Szabó Kimmel and József Kádas) break into the Hungarian embassy in Bern and take the ambassador (János Kulka) hostage. As the Swiss police surround the building and a group of Hungarian immigrants show up on the street to demonstrate, a tense, twist-filled hostage drama plays out behind the closed doors of the embassy. The screenplay by Norbert Köbli (’The Exam’) is based on a true story.
