In a tiny village in northeast Hungary a young, unnamed boy warily chronicles his family's struggles to survive. Ostracized because of his father's Jewish heritage and his mother's connections to the Kulaks, who once owned land and supported the fascist Horthy regime before it was toppled by Communists, their situation is worst than most. Related through a variety of narrative voices, these accounts reveal the history of Hungary through the physical and psychic traumas of two World Wars, and the country's treatment of Jews.
