On a summer day in 1945, an Orthodox man and his grown son return to a village in Hungary while the villagers prepare for the wedding of the town clerk’s son. The townspeople—suspicious, remorseful, fearful, and cunning—expect the worst and behave accordingly. Based on the acclaimed short story “Homecoming” by Gábor T. Szántó, “1945” presents an intimate portrait of a community’s collective guilt.
