Nelly. Louise. Boske. A bitter old woman. A woman of a special destiny. A wind-lined chitri. The three Szalay girls. They are smart, do not hesitate to express their opinions, have a sense of humor and dare to trust their emotions. Three moods. Three types of desire. Three kinds of destiny. In the girls' lives, bohemian poets, handsome soldiers, and self-serving officials come and go. Some are virtuosos of words, some are of waiting, some are of self-discipline. Sometimes dreams come true. Then the realities become a distant dream.
Would that really be all there is to desire, happiness, love?
