Hungarian obstetrician Bálint Grassai left his native village in Maramureş, Romania many years ago to attend medical school in Budapest. He also left behind a son he never met, the result of a short affair with a local woman. At Easter, when Bálint returns to bury his father, he is faced with deciding the fate of his abandoned son. Simon is now a self-destructive and rebellious 17-year-old, beholden to local gang leader Dumitru. On the cusp of becoming a father again, Bálint is wrenched back into the stark and unforgiving world he left behind.
