The tale of The Son of the White Horse is one of the oldest in the treasury of Hungarian folktales. We find in it the motif of the tree reaching up to the sky, and the enormous strength, gained by suckling for seven years, with which the hero overcomes Treetearer, Stonecrumbler and Ironkneader. Later on he outwits the wicked little dwarf of the Hungarian folktales, the Seven-hearted Lobahobgoblin, conquers the twelve-headed dragon, and finally wins the hand of the prettiest princess. In this adoptation of Marcell Jankovics , Fehérlófia is symbolizing the mankind who will have to join battle with the three greatest disasters: the rise of the wrong and fool Ideologies, the War and the dehumanized IT-society.
