Synopsis

Coming Back is a drama of love, youth and violence told through a story of growing up, exploring sexuality and the challenges of freedom. Hungarian youth footballer Szabolcs and his German team mate Bernard are not only good friends and team members in the same youth football team in Germany, but also a couple in love. After a lost match Szabolcs is kicked off the team because of “not fitting in”. He decides to move back to Hungary with the intention of finally telling his parents that he is gay and to quit football for good. (excerpt)
