In a deserted neighborhood in post-communist Budapest, young bohemians squat in an abandoned building and build a bar. Reclaiming the Jewish identity their parents' generation turned away from after the Holocaust, they create a vibrant new subculture that combines big ideas and intense debates with wild parties. Friendships form and fray, couples recombine, people change, the neighborhood is transformed. But when authoritarianism and antisemitism make a surprise comeback in the country at large, will the place they built survive?

A tale of friendship, idealism, and coming of age, set against the backdrop of Hungary's current terrifying slide into dictatorship.

*The Lee Strasberg Creative Center is a not-for-profit branch of the Institute initially founded by Anna Strasberg in 1977 to develop outreach programming for inner-city youth.  Its mission has expanded as it seeks opportunities to engage with the greater community, contribute to the direction of the American Theater, and extend the understanding of Lee Strasberg?s innovative contributions to modern acting and his philosophy of actor training. As part of its commitment to nurturing the future of American theater, the Creative Center currently supports an extensive scholarship program that fosters artistic development for over twenty students each year.  It offers opportunities for emerging, young directors and playwrights through The Lee Strasberg Directing Fellowship and The Clifford Odets Ensemble Play Commission.  Additional programs supported by the Center include the StrasbergTalks lecture series, workshops, and international collaborations.  It also maintains the Strasberg archives and library.
