1945. Two Orthodox Jewish strangers are spotted at the train station of a small Hungarian village that is in the middle of preparing for a wedding and quickly becomes abuzz—who are these men? Have they come to reclaim stolen Jewish property? Shot in breathtaking black and white, 1945 revisits a time of uncertainty and chaos, as Hungary rebuilds itself postwar and must define its relationship with Europe’s surviving Jews.
