In a remote castle in the wine-growing region of northern Hungary, a mysterious delegate arrives to persuade a beloved, retired politician to claim the reins of power. Set at the end of World War I, when the nation is on the verge of collapse, Lost Land confronts the ideas of statehood and personal obligation with sharp humor and intrigue.
