Synopsis
In a cellar in 1956 Budapest, a group talk of rising up against the Russians but they need another Louis Kossuth. The Russians start the revolution by firing on a group of protesting workers. A protestor lies wounded in front of a tank. A man carries him to safety and then leads a group to steal more weapons. He tells them to call him Franz, leads them in more daring raids and exposes a Russian agent amongst them. The Russians bring more arms and Franz tells the group to flee and then disappears. The group realises that Franz looks just like Louis Kossuth without a beard and moustache.
