You can now watch Island of Good Hope on all Emirates Airlines flights! This is a big deal for my independent film, which starts from the banks of the Tisza, as Emirates is one of the world’s largest international airlines, flying to 158 destinations in 85 countries on 6 continents,

Now many, many nations can experience the story set on Lake Tisza. I am proud and honoured! I hope one day I will have the opportunity to watch it on one of the flights above the clouds,

The film: Island of Good Hope

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the protagonist decides to voluntarily quarantine himself on a tiny deserted island in Lake Tisza. On the island is a small hut that he and his father had built years earlier. However, their dream could not be completed because the father had died in the meantime, Lelépő writes. The boy wants to get out of his rut and face himself, so he returns to the island after seven years, at the time of the pandemic.

However, after what seems like an adventure, he is soon tested by loneliness, which reveals his weaknesses and fears. The wonderful nature, the healing power of the Tisza, the nomadic life and the old teachings of his father slowly change his values. He understands what is really important in life and what is not.

Based on real events, the movie Island of Good Hope is a story about the power of loneliness, perseverance, dreams, retreating to nature, father-son relationships and letting go, Lelépő writes.
