Life on earth is fed by sunlight – but there is also life in the dark, for example in caves. The film shows how cave divers and biologists have discovered hitherto unknown species in the Monas-Janos cave below Budapest, the picturesque capital of Hungary. "Budapest Inferno" illuminates the underground wonders of the city and explains the deepest secrets of evolution. However, the largest underwater cave in Europe still contains more surprises.
