Both of them must overcome their harsh feelings towards one another, and perhaps learn to achieve their individual goals together…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

From promising Hungarian filmmaker János Edelényi comes a heart-warming tale about two unlikely friends, which also includes a strong performance by character actor Brian Cox (no, not that one…).
