In the shimmering summer heat, Greta, a Jewish Hungarian mother of three announces that she's terminally ill with cancer. For her children Miki, Bina and Ali, not only their family but their whole world falls apart. They fall like colorful autumn leaves and only pull themselves together to accompany Greta on her last journey. They are joined by a Hungarian doctor, Melina, who is on her own journey of emancipating herself from her tyrannical father, and also trying to start a family of her own with Miki and Ali’s father, Greta’s ex husband Josef. For one heartbeat death unites them all. But a harsh winter pushes them apart like snowflakes; everybody suffers in their own martyrdom. Bina stops talking and travels to Hungary to connect with her American birth father, the other two despair at the weakness of their father Josef, and the ways in which he treated Greta. Spring finally comes and Melina leads the three siblings to Budapest to seek traces of Greta’s past. Slowly their hibernation ends and family starts to blossom again. Running time: 01:56:00.
