Synopsis:

As Hungary’s political climate becomes increasingly radicalized, Virág, a former green politician, loses faith in the pretend-to-be democratic parliament of Hungary and retires from politics. She and her musician partner Nóra decide to adopt a child and focus on building a family together. The documentary follows the two women through their long and ultimately successful adoption process to bring home their young daughter of Roma origin. Soon the rising tides of hate and homophobia in Hungary begin to overflow into their family.
