If by luck the world and war do not cross each other's path, an idyllic life is the reward. This film is the story of the love of our hero Mr. N and Ilona: drama and anthropology. Through the lens of the 9.5mm camera of this meticulous military engineer we can follow the events as they were taking place in the life-factory-family triangle — all in the shadow of the official historical drama. The convivial army contractor bears an awful resemblance to Rakosi, the Communist dictator of later times. Shocking shots of the re-annexation of Upper Northern Hungary following the revision of the Peace Treaty of Trianon (1938) are included. Mr. N has a special documentary message for us, comprising thirty years in the life of Hungary, visions of terror and dictatorships, childbirths and revolution. A Hungarian family: they are looking at each other, at outsiders, and as we are looking at them, the hidden similarity of things dawns upon us.
