This beautifully filmed, true story is inspired by award-winning Hungarian director Peter Gardos’s parents. It’s July 1945 and Miklos, a 25-year-old Hungarian, is looking for love. Having amazingly survived the Nazi death camps and now living in a hospital in Sweden, he has been diagnosed with tuberculosis and is given only six months to live. But rather than accept his fate, Miklos has other plans.

He sets out on a mission to find a wife, and acquires the names of the 117 Hungarian women also recovering in Sweden. He writes a letter to each of them in his beautiful cursive hand. One of these women, he is sure, will become his wife. Gardos’s movie has been compared by critics to the award-winning film Life is Beautiful with its full range of emotion and cinematography.
