"Banned for over a decade for its outspoken criticism of the post-WWII communist regime in Hungary, Péter Bacsó's The WItness has since then achieved unparalleled cult status in its native land ... The Witness takes place during the height of the Rákosi Era, which was closely modeled after the ruthless and brutal Stalin regime. The film follows the life of an ordinary dike keeper, Józef Pelikán, who has been caught for illegally slaughtering his pig, Dezsoʺ. Instead of doing hard time for his 'heinous' crime, Pelikán is elevated into an important position, generally reserved for the communist elite. Of course, Pelikán is utterly clueless about his newfound luck, not to mention his new job. Even his new benefactor, the mysterious Comrade Virág, is reluctant to reveal the real reason behind Pelikán's preferential treatment. Thus begins Pelikán's hilarious adventure deep within the 'sophisticated' communist society ... until one day, when he gets called for to return the 'favor' by falsely testifying against his long-time friend in a mock-up show trial"--Back cover
