Two brothers in Budapest have different aspirations. Tamas, a member of the Hungarian water polo team, dreams of victory at the Olympics in Melbourne. Peter dreams of a more lasting goal - his country's liberation from Soviet domination. But that was all before Peter met Gabriella, a raven hair beauty from the national orchestra with a menacing past.

Over the span of a few weeks in the fall of 1956, their aspirations collide and crumble as a ruthless regime tries to hold its grip on power and the new lovers struggle against a single secret police officer who has taken the battle in Budapest all too personally.
