Back in the late ‘70s, somewhere behind the iron curtain, a young boy experiences the gloomy and strict everyday life of a pioneer camp. Galambos, whose name means «pigeon», is a naive teenager, strongly influenced by his father’s fascination for Native Americans. His imaginary world contrasts with the reality of communist Hungary.  He is waiting for his father to return.
