AWARD: PATEH SABALLY AWARD 2017
INSTITUTE: Budapest Metropolitan University
PLOT: Life can always astonish us in the most unexpected ways. Even for a man who, tormented by debts and with nothing to lose, takes a chance and steals a taxi, with the aim of scraping together much money and eventually embarking in an adventure that would bring him to look to the world in a different way, perhaps even better.
This opportunity was given by Dunja, an immigrant girl trying to escape from Budapest to Austria, hoping for a new identity and a new job to support her family in Kosovo.
Regarding the Hungarian phenomenon of departures that has recently characterized the backdrop in Est Europe, David Borbás is able to lightly tell us this story focusing on a friendship born among glances and faint smiles, that, even in front of an unpleasant end, will bring the two main characters to get stronger together and to find something good in a world apparently pouring in misfortunes.
