A Film by Katalin Oláh
and Sándor Csukás

Synopsis

AJÁNDÉK.
Modern ballad of an old man and his grandson. In a distant corner of Transylvania, at the far end of an almost empty village, in a tiny little house, a lonely old widower has given up on life. A bus winds its way through the snowy landscape, bringing a surprise Christmas visitor. The unexpected arrival of his grandson changes the plans of the old man. Can the young boy and the old man, both closed into their own world, find connection through new technology?
