The 22-year-old Antal is a member of the hated political police. In October of 1956, during the revolution in Budapest, he escapes the wrath of the people by fleeing to the countryside house of his aunt, a Holocaust survivor. Aunt Sára tries her best to mother him and divert the attention of battered Antal with an old favorite song. When the Soviets launch an attack against Hungary on November 4, Antal is determined to join them in order to get his revenge. But Aunt Sára’s song keeps ringing in his ears, no matter how hard he tries to push it away. He has an unbearable earworm. When the time finally comes for vengeance, his earworm gets the better of him. The song becomes a macabre dance of death...
