Director Attila Szász's political thriller chronicles the day of August 16, 1958 when two Hungarian immigrants (Tamás Szabó Kimmel and József Kádas) broke into the Hungarian embassy in Bern and took the ambassador (János Kulka) hostage. As the Swiss police surrounds the building and a group of Hungarian immigrants shows 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 about the aftermath of the 1956 Hungarian revolution.
