Anyák is a story of how two women of different ethnicities, cultures and generations experienced motherhood. Klara is a Hungarian woman in her 70s, a mother of a large family, who brought up her children of various backgrounds in communist Hungary in the 1980s. Sarah is a Ugandan woman in her late 20s, who is raising her daughter Tunde in contemporary Hungary. The story is a reflection on the issues of identity and belonging in Europe in the past and today.
