Beneath the surface
Underneath a beautiful lake in Transylvania, lies the demolished ruin of a Hungarian community. 5 different religions used to live there for centuries peacefully together, traditionally in mutual love and respect. Driven away by Ceausescu’s village demolishing politics, many of them have been sprawled across different countries and social classes. The survivors now organize a yearly reunion, in a fruitless attempt to pass on their values to the younger generations.
