Near documentary drama. Based on the friendship of two of the brightest stars of the Hungarian fine literature, János Arany and Sándor Petőfi, the play depicts events that give us an insight into the hottest era of the Hungarian history surrounding the revolution and fight for freedom of 1848-1849, as well as the personality of the two poets.

Thanks to the support of the Hungarian National Advisory Board and to the organization of the Hungarian Education Association of Vajdaság (Voivodina, Serbia), by end of December 2018, the piece was played on stage in 30 locations of Délvidék. The actors are hoping to present the play in many more locations in the Carpathian Basin.

The premier took place on the 31st of May 2018 in the VM4K Studio of Szabadka.
