In 1945, after having been freed from a concentration camp, the 25-year-old Hungarian man, Miklós, is being treated at a Swedish hospital. The doctors diagnose him with a severe lung disease and tell him that he has no more than six months to live. But he refuses to give up, wants to find a wife with whom he can start a new life, and sends letters to 117 Hungarian girls who are also being treated in Sweden. One of the girls is 19-year-old Lili, who likes Miklós's letter, and they start corresponding. Based on the true story of director Péter Gárdos’ parents.
