Three men, who all committed murder as children. They passed their entire youth in communist Hungary’s most brutal prison, where they were first filmed. Disturbing archive footage shows them confessing the details of their crimes and sharing their plans for the future. Thirty years on the filmmaker goes to find them, and discovers untold secrets and a Hungary he has never known. Fate, sin, and legacy – seen through the eyes of Cain’s children.
