Fresh Air (Friss levegő)

(2006, feature, 35mm, color, 109 minutes, 1:1,85, DolbySRD)
First feature

Viola is still a beautiful woman. Angéla is ashamed of her mother.
Communication between them has become almost impossible.
They are together only to watch their favourite television series; they never miss an episode.
Probably, in secret, they both are in love with the protagonist.
Viola works where no one else wants to. She is looking for a real man whom she could love.
Angéla would like to design nice dresses. She desires something different. Another life.
Fresh air.
