  1. Beskrivelse

    After the occupation of Hungary in 1945, Stalin crushed the democratically elected Hungarian Parliament and the political parties. A Communist dictatorship was established. The Secret Police, directed by the Soviet KGB, persecuted, arrested the members of the opposition and closed the escape route to the West with the Iron Curtain. The lives of many families were destroyed by the Communist system. This is a story of a family, where the father dies in 1946 and the mother marries an American Hungarian who visits Hungary in 1948. The marriage is approved by the Communist authorities, but the wife and her two teenage children from her first marriage are not allowed to leave Hungary to the U.S. They try to escape through the Iron Curtain. They are caught and imprisoned. After 9 years of separation, the wife and her daughter are allowed to leave Hungary, but her son, a young physician can not follow. He never gives up plans to join his family in America. This finally happens in 1974 when he misleads the ever watching Secret Police. He establishes a successful career in Medicine and Medical Research in the U.S.
