Anita who's only 16, has one of the great Hungarian poet's books and little else left, but she keeps many ripping memories inside herself. She survived the concentration camp, is beautiful and sensitive, life trials have tattoed her soul forever. She's running away from a Hungarian orphanage to join her aunt, Monika. Eli, Monika's young brother-in-law, meets Anita at the border to accompany her in a journey through Czechoslovakia, where she finds herself a clandestine in a world still in turmoil. Eli (Robert Sheehan) doesn't seem to care about her past, her wounds: the young man is attracted by her body and as soon as they start their journey in a train, overcrowded by a vagabond multitude, he starts harassing her in a cruel, cynical game.
