Treasure City combines several storylines touching upon the darker side of human interactions and relationships that slowly interconnect as the film unfolds. It’s all there: lies and half-truths, attempts at psychological domination, disagreements, humiliations, threats and fears... all taking place in a city over the course of one night. The film hovers over the issue of dominance and vulnerability in various types of human contacts through exquisite depiction of numerous situations inspired by our everyday reality, cutting through different layers of society.
A fascinating, well-crafted mosaic portraying the current situation in Hungary by the renowned Hungarian director Szabolcs Hajdu, the author of award-winning films White Palms, Bibliothèque Pascal and It’s Not the Time of My Life.
