By genre this film forms a transition between a portrait-like documentary and an educational film.
It showcases the phases of felt production, from sheep trimming through wool processing to the various felt techniques. In what it is revolutionary and a novelty is that it elevates felt into the heights of today’s modern artistic branches. Its goal is to provide knowledge of felt making – as one of the most ancient textile making techniques – and to make it more popular.

Late night rendezvous in a desolate forest hut in Transylvania. The young guy, who comes from Budapest, is mesmerized by the dazzling beauty of the landscape and the unique charm of the local girl. However comfortable he feels in the friendly environment, he has to wake up to the fact that what he knows about certain natives of the land is all too limited.
