Co-produced by “Les Films du Fleuve”, a production company run by the Dardenne brothers, it is one of twenty-one films in the running for the Palme d’Or. this time with a family drama shot in Transylvania. Matthias is back in his multi-ethnic hometown after quitting his job in Germany. He worries about his son, who grew up without him, and also wants to see Csilla, his ex-girlfriend. When the factory she runs decides to recruit foreign employees, the peace of the small community is disturbed.
