In 1959 draft soldiers shoot down a trespasser on the Hungarian-Yugoslavian border, the journalist Eva Szalanczky. She was neglected and vilified during the fifties for her passionate truthtelling. Erdos editor-in-chief, who went through the prison of Rakosi, took her to the paper called Igazsag (Truth) in 1959. With the newspaper Eva launches a fight not only to reveal truth and reality, but also for the right of being different. Her article written on organising the co-operatives and her love towards her colleague, Livia, starts a series of conflicts that end in tragedy, and where there is no other way out but a blind flight to death.
