Abandoned homes in the most poverty-stricken part of the former miners’ colony of the city of Pécs are the venue and subject of this film. It intercuts graphics (instead of photos) with the personal appearance of Csaba Nemes as a reporter who deliberately becomes part of the story and the situation.
The main character of the story is an angry janitor who wishes to apply dictatorial methods to control young tenants in “his” house to make everyone wear their hair short and come home early. The film is based on a fake radio interview.
We peek into a man’s nightmares, in which the typical scenery of the Hungarian countryside is unfolding before our eyes. The grotesque nature of the man’s journey is enhanced by the narrator who supplies an interpretation of the surreal dreams.
