“What would you do if the love of your life disavowed any knowledge of you? That is the curious situation that Marta (Natasa Stork) finds herself in after returning to Budapest from decades abroad. She believes – she knows for a fact – that Janos (Viktor Bodó), whom she met while in New Jersey, knows her and loves her. Yet when she plans a rendezvous back in Hungary, Janos says he has no idea who she is or what she is talking about. This throws Marta, a neurosurgeon who is beginning to doubt her own work, into a state of existential crisis, one that director Lili Horvát teases with curiosity and ambiguity.” – Barry Hertz, the Globe and Mail.
