A father and daughter live together in the Hungarian countryside. As a single parent, the father has a busy life, juggling a stressful job with family responsibilities. After the tragic death of his wife, he tries to shelter his daughter from further suffering or sadness. This often means that he is over-protective, refusing to let her speak to friendly neighbours. When the daughter’s prized possession, a small music box, accidentally breaks, the father refuses to fix it, remembering how his own father would throw his broken toys away. The daughter flees to her grandfather – the same ‘friendly neighbour’ that she has been prohibited to speak to – who helps her fix the broken music box. When her father finds her, he is overcome by guilt and realises that broken relationships, just like broken toys, can be easily repaired.
