Survival or public service? Mikó Imre and the Security
Directed by: 
Domokos János
​This film deals with adaption, accommodation and coexistence with the system. In the centre of the film is Mikó Imre, a man of extraordinary quality. Between 1940 and 1944, Mikó was a parliamentarian. In 1944, he was taken to the Soviet camp as a war prisoner, where he became an antifascist activist. He was politically and socially rehabilitated in 1970, when he became an editor at the Kriterion Publishing House.
He was always considered an outstanding personality, one of the opinion leaders of the Hungarian minority in Transylvania. Why has he become an informer? Is it possible that his collaboration was determined not only by his own  life strategy, but also by his intent to exert political influence?
The film raises questions, and the protagonists give different answers.
