The story of ‘129’ is divided into two action threads. The first one is played somewhere in Europe, the other takes place in Budapest in 2063. In some further scenes, ten additional countries also appear. In the future we see flying cars and drones everywhere. Medrocorp British Research and Development Company is expanding its influence on the whole world, and they are observing people. They possess significant biological and technical developments, such as cloned arms, bones, organs, robots, flying cars and drones.
The sci-fi movie, ‘129’ powerfully holds a mirror up on our controlled society.
In 1984, we get to know a composer, Orlando, who accidentally kills his neighbour. Orlando has a wife and a little daughter. From that point his life is getting more and more complicated, since he is under investigation.
In the future a soldier named 129 escapes from Medrocorp’s building, whom we are getting to know through his thought. The mysticism of the film is that the soldier appears in Orlando’s dreams, and talks to him, trying to get in touch with him.
The big question of the movie is what does these two characters have to do with each other, who are 80 years away from each other… Additionally, two men from the future somehow see the past, and they are watching Orlando. These two men also appear in the past, as well as Orlando’s wife, daughter, brother and neighbour in the future. Another big question of the movie is how can they see the past from the future, and how can these people exist in two different times?

He wants to shoot stories that encourage the audience to think further, and will motivate them to watch it again. As a sci-fi, ‘129’ is rich in spectacular visual effects, however, it was a prior perspective to keep them in balance with human aspects and dramatic situations. He believes that the most valuable movies and stories are the ones that are being watched over and over again and yet, there is always something to discover.
