THE EXAM

by Péter Bergendy

synopsis

The revolutionary push of autumn 1956 has been stifled and Hungary is enveloped in an atmosphere of fear and snooping. And so young Agent Jung, outwardly posing as a private teacher, undergoes a test of loyalty administered by his superior and friend Markó. Living and working in an environment where the spies themselves are spied upon demands a fair amount of vigilance and an ability to make quick judgments.
