Made in Hungaria
Set during the early 1960s in Hungary, a young man returns home after four years in the USA. Life under dictatorship was going to be tough. His old friends don't know what to make of his outrageous clothes, flawless American accent and collection of original Buddy Holly 45s. His childhood sweetheart is cold and distant while the local tough guy is unmoved by the challenger to his rock 'n' roll crown. But that's not all. When the authorities see the effect his gyrating hips and lewd music have on teenage girls, they won't stand for it. His father's job is on the line, and, for the first time, he must play by the rules. He has no choice but to enter the local talent show ... and the rest is rock 'n' roll history. In English and Hungarian with English subtitles.
