Endre and Mária work at a slaughterhouse and, for various reasons, barely communicate with the outside world. One day, they accidentally realize that they share the same dream every night. Both are confused, slightly frightened, and initially quite distrustful of each other. But when they manage to overcome their initial hesitation, they come to terms with the peculiar coincidence. And when awake, they try to recreate what they experience in their dreams. This fragile mystery drama won a Golden Bear at Berlinale.

Ildikó Enyedi

The prominent Hungarian director started making short films in the Béla Balázs Studio, the only pre-1989 independent production in Eastern Europe. She was immensely successful with My Twentieth Century, which won a Golden Camera at Cannes IFF. Her films Magic Hunter and Tamas and Juli were presented in the main competition at Venice IFF.
