FOXES

by Mira Fornay

synopsis

Alzbeta (23) is desperately trying to make a new home in Ireland by finding a man at any cost. Not just because she had to do it - her real home in eastern Slovakia is being torn down to make way for a highway - but mainly because of more personal reasons. Her sister Martina (27), who is engaged to Steve (30), an Irishman, is trying to help her. Alzbeta refuses her help. It seems that she is jealous of her sister's apparently carefree, better life. She decides to stay on her own in Dublin. She meets a strange person named Zuzana, who changes Alzbeta, getting her into situations Alzbeta would otherwise not get into. As the story progresses it slowly becomes clear that Zuzana, in fact, is only a part of Alzbeta - the darker side of her personality.
