You can’t! You have been used to hearing this since childhood, you know what it means.

The two main characters of this film Szarka (Magpie) and Barbi have just turned
seventeen, which is an ideal age to refuse everything associated with this word. Over one
summer they travel around – to Siófok, Crete, Barcelona and Rome – despite all parental
warning. They are seemingly looking for love but there is more to this trip. They are trying to
find themselves. During this search they tell a lot of lies, they chase after romantic dramas
and imaginary ideals of man, and they want to make their dreams come true. Just like
everyone else at the age of seventeen. They are pressing their way forward across Europe
awkwardly and randomly. They find themselves in dozens of comical and laughable
situations, from which they then escape and move on. This is a film about being on the
road, becoming an adult and chasing after love. It is about everything adults told them that
they can’t do.
