Award-winning film by Réka Pigniczky
The film is about Réka and her sister Eszti trying to find out what their father did as a freedom fighter during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. The story unfolds as the women take their father's ashes from the U.S. to Hungary to fulfill his dying wish to be buried in his native land, a place to which he never returned after fleeing in 1956. The journey veers off course when the sisters realize that their father's role in Hungary's revolution was never really questioned - and never really documented. Maybe it never happened.
Taking place in Budapest a half-century after the fateful events that took nearly 3,000 lives and forced more than 200,000 Hungarians to emigrate, Journey Home documents Laszlo Pigniczky's daughters as they take a personal - sometimes disturbing, sometimes humorous - trek into the history of 1956.
