When Ettie's husband dies, her daughter Iza insists that her mother
give up the family house in the countryside and move to Budapest.
Displaced from her community and her home, Ettie tries to find her
place in this new life, but can't seem to get it right. She
irritates the maid, hangs food outside the window because she
mistrusts the fridge and, in her naivety and loneliness, invites a
prostitute in for tea. Iza's Ballad is the story of a woman who
loses her life's companion and a mother trying to get close to a
daughter whom she has never truly known. It is about the meeting of
the old-fashioned and the modern worlds and the beliefs we
construct over a lifetime.
