SYNOPSIS

A unique way of life that repeats itself every day, slowly transformed Imre and Piroska in some museum exhibits.  In a quiet and isolated world we meet a couple whose existence begins to depend on the interaction with a different world and the absurd within.  Their line of work turned them into a sort of local attraction, and vacationing foreigners are brought to see “the bears” and photograph themselves with them. Their life stands still, like in a museum diorama, from wich they are trying to break through.
