Mari comes from Hungary to Berlin to meet her early love, Bálint. But instead of meeting Bálint, she meets his pregnant girl-friend Britta and his friend, the musician Jasin. Mari realizes in that night that theres no common future for her and Bálint, and that they ceased to be those who they once wanted to be for each other. Mari returns to Budapest with the consciousness that she has lost Bálint forever, but on the other hand she knows that she has regained control over her own life.
