Father Róbert is outgoing, cheerful, and loved and respected by the entire community. His initiatives are as essential for the development of the village as his soccer skills are for the local sports club. Few people know, however, about his life partner and their three children. When the priest decides to leave the community, his followers cry with disappointment. But while still on the job, his family misses him dearly. Directors Julianna Ugrin and Márton Vízkelety depict a systemic problem facing priests worldwide in this personal story.


Márton Vízkelety is a director and cinematographer. He was thirteen when he stared taking black and white photos with an analog camera. In 2007 he graduated from the University of Theatre and Film Arts, Budapest, Hungary, with an MA degree. He took part in many workshops, including the Berlinale Talent Campus, and Cinetrain in Moscow, Russia. He works on short films, commercials, and documentaries in Russia, Hungary, the United Kingdom and USA. Holy Dilemma is his first feature documentary as a director.
