Emese

Based on an ancient Hungarian legend
Emese has a dream on her wedding night: A huge turul bird blesses her with a child. A river flows from the girl's body, which flows all the way to the Carpathian Basin, symbolizing how the Hungarian tribes, led by Emese's son Álmos, leave the Asian wilderness and find a new home in the heart of Europe. The film deals with the ancient Hungarian legend of Emese's dream.
