Sunset

Budapest, 1913, in the heart of Europe as World War I approaches. The young Irisz Leiter arrives in the Hungarian capital with high hopes to work as a milliner at Leiter, the legendary hat store that once belonged to her late parents; but she is quickly sent away by the new owner, Oszkár Brill. While preparations are under way at the store to host important, royal guests, a man abruptly comes to Irisz looking for Kálmán Leiter, who he says is her brother.
