Peti is a diabetic and breeder of phoenixes. When a sweet (!) meteorite lands in his room one day, he can’t wait to rush out and tell someone about it. Irma, dressed in her dad’s old diving suit and the architect of the home-made meteorites, proves to be an ideal companion… Infused with an irresistibly unsettling playfulness, the film briefly addresses and then abandons the problems of the modern world, from an absence of love to pervasive microplastics.


Synopsis

Peti lives with his brother Zoli. Peti is a severe diabetic and keen breeder of phoenixes. When a meteorite lands in his room one day, a sweet meteorite, no less, he can’t wait to tell Zoli about it, but his brother is fed up with his eccentricities. So Peti finds himself another kindred spirit: Irma, a girl dressed in her dad’s old diving suit, who makes the meteorites and throws them through people’s windows. The meteorites are full of love since, in Irma’s opinion, there should be as much love on this earth as there is water…  Infused with an irresistibly unsettling playfulness, the film briefly addresses and then abandons the problems of the modern world, from an absence of love to pervasive microplastics.
