Written by the director together with Zsófia Ruttkay, the central theme of Free Fall is a woman who commits suicide by hurling herself off the roof of a tower block. During her fall, she looks through the various windows and discovers the lives of the residents, which allows the film to tell six different stories, giving a very humorous outlook on the mediocrity of humanity and modern life.

Starring Piroska Molnár, Zsolt Nagy, Réka Tenki, Zsolt Nagy, Zsolt Trill, Irén Bordán, Tamás Jordán, Géza Hegedus D and Miklós Benedek, Free Fall was produced by Ferenc Pusztai for KMH Film, and co-produced by France (Sciapode) and South Korea (Jeonju Digital Project). The film will be released in Hungarian cinemas on 25 September.
