Synopsis

There’s a shortage of doctors in Hungary.

Also of children.

As his mother dies, a young paediatrician living in Germany has to return to northeastern Hungary. He has inherited her GP’s practice -- of course, he does not want to keep it. He is forced, however, to treat the people who come to him for help. While sorting out issues around the inheritance and working as a temporary GP, he starts to suspect that his mother was not just a benign country doctor. He has to face his memories of her and his real inheritance: the ailing people in the Hungarian countryside.
