About the Film

The police interrogate 14-year-old Mára at the station after he is caught behind the wheel far across country from where he lives. He and somewhat eccentric Heduš had set out for the frozen landscape down south to seek adventure; but the mischievous breeziness with which Mára gives his story, and his concealment of the details of the trip gradually strips his statement of credibility.
