Based on the novel of the true story of writer/director Péter Gárdos’ parents, FEVER AT DAWN journals an unlikely love affair between two Hungarian Holocaust survivors recuperating in Sweden.  Twenty-five year old Miklós has been given six months to live and wants nothing more than to find love.  He sets out to find a wife by writing letters to 117 Hungarian women who are also recovering in Sweden.  The response of 19-year-old Lilli captures his heart and his imagination.
