RED COLIBRI

Anna is a cab driver of about 30, separated from her husband and striving to bring her daughter up as a single parent. She witnesses the robbing of a gas station when she goes there to have a car-wash. This incident causes the young Ukranian Andrei who washes her car to enter her life. Andrei is a promising ballet and is looking for a chance to have a carrier in Hungary. Anna falls in love with Andrei and deems it her duty to solve his problems. As for Andrei, he aims to enter Budapest Ballet. But he does not have a working permit and moonlighting is out of the question. His father is an officer who has served for many years in the occupation forces in Hungary. Thanks to his father’s relations from that time, he begins to dance in a night club owned by a Russian. Anna, on the other hand is trying to introduce Andrei to the director of the Budapest Ballet, and she persuades him to come to the club to watch Andrei’s show. However, the realization of Andrei’s aims spell unhappiness for Anna.
