Natasa Stork is quietly charismatic as Márta Vizy, a Hungarian neurosurgeon who has carved out a respectable career in the US. Yet following a brief encounter with fellow brain specialist and author János Drexler (Viktor Bodó) at a medical conference in New Jersey, her life has been upturned by the realisation that he is “what I’ve been looking for”. Now she’s in Budapest, waiting to meet the man she loves. But when János fails to show up for their hastily arranged rendezvous at the Liberty Bridge, Márta seeks him out at his hospital, only to be told that he has no memory of ever meeting her before. Has she imagined it all or is he lying?
