CGiii Comment

They say that children can be cruel...take a look at the adults, should they not know any better?

Were they not children once - how easily we forget.

A dark, painful film with a few glimmers of cherished hope and needed love...that are extinguished by a harshness that should be alien to every man.

A sad, sad tale with some extraordinary performances.

The(ir) Blurb...

Áron is a happy child in his family. But at some point things take a different turn, and his mother starts to lose her health rapidly. As this happens, the man in charge decides what's best for Áron without consulting the young boy's opinion, and the boy finds himself thrown out of his warm home into an orphanage in the woods. He's utterly displeased by what's happening, without knowing he has yet to face much worse. After a hard time getting over the harrassment of his classmates and being accepted as one of them, another obstacle on the way to his peace of mind faces him: His obnoxious teachers. He has no intention of being bad, but it's beyond his ability to blend into the revolting place he's in. The nasty treatment of the teaching crew gets the better of him, and he's not all that calm and passive anymore. But that leads into unpleasant events which Áron himself wouldn't want.
