A school somewhere in Hungary. A typical literature class with typically ill-prepared students. A day like any other, except that the prime minister is due to visit. The school secretary, in charge of the celebration, tries to keep everything under control — particularly a fancy cake that won’t fit in the refrigerator. While the kitchen staff tries to solve this problem, 17-year-old Márti, who is supposed to give the welcoming speech, haltingly prepares her little revolution.
