In this unconventional love story, two introverted people, both workers at a meat-processing plant, find out by chance that they share the same dream every night. At first, they are puzzled, incredulous and frightened, but as they begin to accept this strange coincidence, they try to recreate in broad daylight what happens in their shared subconscious. ON BODY AND SOUL represents a celebrated comeback to feature filmmaking for director Ildikó Enyedi whose debut film MY TWENTIETH CENTURY won the Caméra d’Or at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival.
