Two introverted people, both workers at an abattoir, find out by chance that they share the same dream every night. At first, they are puzzled and incredulous, but as they begin to accept this strange coincidence, they try to recreate in broad daylight what happens in their shared subconscious.
After an 18-year hiatus, Ildikó Enyedi returned to directing with this serene, astute dissection of loneliness, taking home the top prize at Berlinale and an Oscar® nomination for best foreign language film. An unexpected love story suffused with surreal beauty and an undercurrent of black humour.
