Sitting at a garden table with his parents at their family residence, Kantor sings the lament of a student intern at a Budapest hospital. His parents join in the refrain in a moment of bucolic family intimacy. A serene sequence shot filmed by Kantor’s cousin Gabor Medviny, a director of photography who worked with filmmaker Bela Tarr.
