Kornel Mundruczó’s sixth feature film tells the tale of an eternal friendship between a girl and a dog in a world where ancestry can decide on life or death. According to Hungarian regulation, every dog, but genuine Hungarian breeds, is subject to a special tax. Loads of dogs are turned out of doors. The 13 year old Lili is fighting to protect her pet, Hagen, in vain. Trying to spot each other, Lili and Hagen are cruising along the gloomy streets of Budapest. After several heartbreaking experiences, the desperate Hagen understands that people are not dogs’ best friends. No wonder he joins a gang of stray dogs. Not finding any trace of Hagen, Lili puts up with her faith. She enjoys the company of her peers. Having no chance to survive, the homeless dogs find their freedom in a revolt against mankind. Their revenge is merciless. As soon as Lili perceives the jarring barks of dogs, she remembers everything and realizes, she is the only one who can halt the war.
