Long before he shot his acclaimed masterpiece Son of Saul, director László Nemes was thinking of a story with a female protagonist who tries to understand a changing world: a Jeanne d’Arc at the culmination of Central Europe in the early 20th century, before the outburst of World War I. Τhis heroine is Irisz, who decides to return as an apprentice to the famous hat store that once belonged to her parents, but finds resistance from the new owner and former employee. As we follow the character in the labyrinths of her past, we witness the unravelling of 20th century history.
