Juli doesn’t like her detention home and often runs home where she’s is not wanted. A widow takes her out of pity but Juli ruins that by starting a relationship with her teenage son. Eventually Juli has even less freedom than when she started.

If I was forced to watch only Hungarian film from the latter half of the 20th century, I'd be content.
