Anyáim története

Her Mothers

As Hungary’s political climate becomes increasingly radicalized, Virág, a former green politician, loses faith in the pretend-to-be democratic parliament and retires from politics. She and her musician partner Nóra decide to adopt a child. With a sensitive lens and close access, directors Asia Dér and Sári Haragonics follow the two women through their long adoption process to bring home their young daughter. But tensions begin to rise between the two as Virág thrives in her role as a mother and Nóra struggles to find her place within the family. As the rising tides of hate and homophobia in Hungary begin to overflow into their family, their lives hit a boiling point. (Cineuropa)
