Klauzál Square

Klauzál Square tells the story of Klara, a precocious preteen new to Budapest’s seedy 7th District. Ostracized and humiliated by the neighborhood mean girls, she starts hanging out with a strange companion: the ghost of a thirteen year old girl. With the ghost’s help, Klara strikes back at her tormenters and takes over their group. But over time, the girls’ adolescent power trips and mind games morph into something much older and darker. Inspired by a real Budapest playground built on what was once a Nazi mass grave. Part of the larger 7th project.
