Inhabitants of a provincial Hungarian town eagerly await the arrival of a circus whose main attractions are the body of “the biggest whale in the world” and the mysterious prince who has a strange talent for attracting violent followers. When the circus finally arrives to town everybody gathers on the main square to see the attractions. Soon the balance of the town is affected and feelings of tension, violence and pending apocalypse arise.
Film's co-director is Ágnes Hranitzky.
