LAND OF STORMS is a Hungarian drama about two men who meet while renovating an old house together, and the complications which ensue when an old friend comes to visit.

Violence

A scene of sexual violence shows a gay man being terrorised by a group of homophobic men. He is threatened with a lit cigarette held close to his face, and forced to perform fellatio on one of his attackers. This is implied rather than clearly shown, with his head forced against the other man's crotch. Afterwards his face is burned with the cigarette. There is also a scene of strong violence after consensual sex, as two men embrace and we realise one has stabbed the other, with sight of blood running from the wound in the victim's abdomen as the knife is removed.

Sex

Brief images of real sex occur in a scene where a group of men masturbate as they watch a hardcore pornographic film. The masturbation is implied below frame, not shown, but on the television the images are clearly visible and show unsimulated heterosexual penetrative sex. Sex scenes between the characters are lack strong detail and focus on kissing and implied sexual activity.

There are also several uses of strong language ('f**k') and some drug use as a cannabis joint is smoked.
