Hungarian (English Subtitles)

With the fall of the Iron Curtain, Hungary’s borders suddenly open up. Everyone wants to travel to Western Europe – young people in particular – but the price of a train ticket is prohibitive. What good is freedom if you can’t afford it?

Ákos, Petya and Laci discover a simple method of using household detergents to dissolve Pelikan’s Blue carbon ink, allowing them to forge train tickets to any destination. Over time, they become professional and infamous forgery artists. For a long time, everything goes smoothly, but when the police start an investigation, the friends discover that freedom comes at a price.
