Mariann, a person on the autism spectrum, wants to be fully independent – to move out of her parent's home and develop a stable livelihood. Her family is neither supportive nor motivating. They find her idea of setting up a plant to extract protein from black soldier fly larvae strange and grotesque. This innovative, future-facing, and sustainable idea would be difficult to achieve on Mariann’s own, especially in present-day Hungary. Hatchery tells the story of a determined and persistent Hungarian woman who happens to live on the spectrum.
