Aurora Borealis - Northern Light

“If you want to tell the truth, honesty is not enough.” Living in Vienna, Olga realises that there are secrets and lies in her family past, and she will not be able to put her own life in order until she works out the truth of what really happened. After returning to Hungary, her elderly mother did everything in her power to keep the past a secret from her daughter and lied to her for years. When her mother falls into a coma, however, Olga finds a mysterious photograph and starts to search for the truth.
