This strange, unsettling romance, a Hungarian abattoir provides the backdrop for an affair between two workers that exists only when they sleep. Endre and Mária discover they share the same dreams where they meet in a forest as deer and fall in love. They decide to make their dreams come true but it's difficult in real life. This extraordinary film offers a lyrical, elliptical and rule-breaking charm.
