After her husbands death, Hanna Szendroy, the former primadonna, is
caught in the claws of the real estate mafia. She looses her lavish home
and ends up homeless at the Keleti train station. When she returns to her
house, now full of homeless people moved in by the real estate mafia, an
unexpected relationship brings hope into her life again. Sometimes it is
through the darkest hardships that the possibility of a cleaner and more
truthful life arises, and, that the miracle of love is ageless.
