Short introduction:

A documentary was shot in February 2009 about the poor in Hungary. The film drafts a picture about the Hungarian families with many children struggling to keep their homes despite debts and hardship, through personal fates and narratives ("Poverty"), as well as the fate of unemployed, homeless people, or those living in their own homes without gas and electricity, stock in deep poverty ("Deep poverty").

In the third part ("Summary after 20 years"), Miklós Tamás Gáspár philosopher, an emblematic figure of the Hungarian political transition speaks about the social mechanisms of two decades, the root causes of poverty and its dramatic consequences.

"Since the end of the '90-s, when I had to reconsider my political and ideological standpoints- among other as the unfortunate impact of reality – I am battling with serious guilt of conscience, as one of the founders of this system." (Miklós Tamás Gáspár, citation from the 3rd theme of the film)
