    The film presents us a contemporary Hungarian artist, Imre Bukta, whose work is exhibited in contemporary art galleries throughout Europe, and who lives in a Hungarian village that is on the verge of total decline. Living in this village is not only a personal choice but also an artistic and civil responsibility for this person who takes inspiration from - and in fact carves his art from - the reality and habitat around him.
    In the style of a free cinematographic essay, Dénes Nagy brings to light unknown territories of Europe and the lives of people who inhabit these areas. Delicately interweaving landscapes and portraits, silence and sounds, this poetic documentary captures the inner spirit of another Hungary.
