In Hungary, in the poor district of Unastilep near Salgotárjan, two Roma boys, Lenard and Gergo, fall in love. Gergő is rejected by his family for his warmth, and after a few agonizing years spent in poverty, the boys move to Budapest to fulfill their dream: they want to write a musical set in Rome. The documentary film Kata Olah, A The narrow path to happiness At this point, he becomes involved in the boys' lives and follows them as they fight to achieve their dreams. At the same time, it brilliantly displays not only the diversity of the relationship between the two boys, but also Giorgio's familial conflict, which gives the film its heft.

I learned about the story of Gergő and Lénárd years ago, when I was a journalist at They were actually talking about the fact that there was a director who was making a documentary about them, and now, 5 years later, this film has been completed, which Budapest International Documentary Film Festival (BIDF) will be filed on January 28. The documentary is already reaping one international success after another: it won the Special Jury Prize at the Thessaloniki International Documentary Film Festival, but it was also included in the competition program of several international festivals.

Director Kata Olah, whose previous film, Digital Nomad, is also available at Jeti Cinema, thought it was important that the film not be shown in an intellectual environment in Budapest for the first time, but that it should be taken to separate venues, where they could talk to Roma after the film. They went to Salgótarján, Miskolc, Debrecen and Pécs, and we joined the show before the first show in Szeged, where the invited Roma group was unfortunately unable to attend, but there were many people from the LGBTQ community in the audience.
