Eleven lesbian women talk about coming to terms with their sexuality in Hungary before and after the regime change - their awakening sexual identity, the desperate attempts to understand it, accept it, and then conceal it all from family, colleagues, their daily environment. This film is a garland of recollections from the unsettling days of the 1956 Revolution through the easing 60's and underground 80's up until the first gay rights movement following the regime change in Hungary. Their accounts bear witness to the personal struggles of homosexual men and women in Hungary to find their place in society before and after the fall of the Iron Curtain.
