Even after the 70th anniversary of the events, it is purposeful to keep the memory of the Holocaust and Raoul Wallenberg vivid. The film attempts to draw a coherent picture about the pre-war Raoul Wallenberg, who is still not a mythic hero. It deals with the early orphaned child who is still a member of one of the wealthiest Swedish families, though never successful in the world of bourgeoisies. We present a valid picture about a man who got a job according to absolutely contingent causes with a Hungarian Jew and whose fate thus became inter-connected with the tragic fate of Eastern-European Jews.

József Sipos is a Hungarian director, writer and producer. He worked at these films: „A titkos szám“, „Kaland“ and „Feljegyzések az egérlyukból“.
