Walls (Si estas paredes hablasen)
If the walls spoke, what would they say about their neighbors? A day in the life of Mr. Istvan and Mrs. Magdi, neighbors for many years, is narrated by the Budapest building in which both live. The walls that surround them reveal their small passions, stories and routines.
