Description

Director-writer Lili Horvath registers as a talent to watch with this strongly acted tale of a rebellious teen mother determined to regain custody of her young son. At its heart, the film is a coming-of-age story, and the protagonist’s struggle to discard bad habits and bad relationships is not an easy one. Pretty, tough-talking Maja lives with her petty-criminal boyfriend in a rundown housing project on the outskirts of Budapest. One day, a micro-credit scheme for entrepreneurs offers her a chance to change her life.
