Narrow Path to Happiness

Narrow Path To Happiness

25th TiDF: World Premiere

Gergo and Lenard are a young gay male couple living in a remote gypsy community in the poorest part of Hungary. They live in a community where being gay is considered an unforgivable sin. They could continue to live out their lives within this hostile environment, but to make their musical film dream come true they move to Budapest. When the sudden death of Gergo’s mother brings a tragic wrinkle to their story, they return to the family who disowned them for one final reckoning, helping them to accept their sexual orientation, the key to their own acceptance and their own chance to happiness.
