From László Nemes, director of the Academy Award® winning Son of Saul, Sunset tells the story of young Írisz Leiter who, in 1913, arrives in Budapest looking for work as a milliner at Leiter, the legendary hat store once owned by her late parents who died in a fire — but she is quickly sent away by the new proprietor, Oszkár Brill. When a man comes to Írisz looking for the murderer Kálmán Leiter, who he says is her brother, Írisz tries to track him down. Her quest to find the only link to her past takes her through the dark streets of Budapest, where only the Leiter hat store shines, into the turmoil of a civilization on the eve of its downfall.
