Rites of manhood from the lives of three males in Budapest. Ninety-one-year-old Dezső, who weaves the last strands into his rich tapestry of a life and says he was a cheat his whole life because he was a photographer. Forty-year-old double bassist Frank, who has to deal with kids, work and unexpected problems of his own making; he calls himself a circus juggler. And 13-year-old Samu, who lost his mother a week before. He doesn't remember his father because he went back to Cameroon.
