Description

This uplifting tale of unvanquished hope is set immediately after World War II. Miklos, a 25 year-old Hungarian Jewish man, is recuperating in a Swedish hospital. Although the doctors are pessimistic about his chances for recovery, he refuses to give up his dream of starting a new life and writes to 117 Hungarian girls who are also recovering from the war. One of them is 19 year-old Lili, who likes Miklos’ letter and starts corresponding with him. Based on the true story of writer/director Peter Gardos’ parents.

Underwritten by Elaine Gerstler & Booker Holton.
