Márta Vizy (Natasa Stork) is a 39-year-old Hungarian neurosurgeon. After 20 years in the United States, she returns to Budapest for a romantic rendezvous at the Liberty Bridge with János (Viktor Bodó), a fellow doctor she met at a conference in New Jersey. Márta waits in vain, while the love of her life is nowhere to be seen. When she finally tracks him down, the bewildered man claims the two have never met.

It’s unclear whether Márta’s wits are clouded by love or if other neurological reactions are at play. Determined to solve the enigma, Márta takes a position at a hospital where, due to both her unfamiliarity with the local culture and her exceptional talent, she is an outsider. With graceful determination, she endures real and perceived slights while navigating the no man’s land separating love from madness. Like Madeleine in Hitchcock’s Vertigo, Adèle H. in Truffaut’s The Story of Adèle H., or Julie, Dominique, and Valentine, the women of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Three Colours trilogy, Márta is a strong yet vulnerable force who anchors herself in her feelings when faced with uncertainty.
