Directed by Arpad Sopsits
A nine-year-boy is abandoned at
an orphanage where life is bleak and the headmaster is plainly sadistic.
Enduring beatings from the staff and other boys, he finally forges a
friendship that gives him the strength to stand up and lead his classmates
in a revolt against their institution. Winner of the Grand Prix des
Ameriques at the Montreal World Film Festival. Hungarian with English
subtitles. 98 minutes.
