It’s World War II, in the occupied Soviet Union. István Semetka is a simple farmer serving as a Sub-lieutenant in the Hungarian army. When his company falls under enemy fire, he has to overcome his fear and take command of the unit, being dragged into a chaos that he cannot control. Natural Light is a rare kind of war movie: low on action, with the horrific main event taking place discreetly off-screen, and the silences between the sparse lines of dialogue are filled with tension. We are witnesses to a long, slow march towards an atrocity.
