- +

Hungarian comedy drama written and directed by Ildikó Enyedi.

The film follows identical twin sisters Dóra (Dorota Segda) and Lili (also Segda), who are adopted by two different families following the death of their mother. Years later, with Lili now a revolutionary planning to use a bomb to assassinate a leading politician, she meets Z (Oleg Yankovskiy) while travelling to complete the job.

However, not long after the pair get together, things begin to get complicated as Z has a chance meeting with Dóra on a boat, and mistaking her for Lili, invites her back to his cabin. When Lili is then unable to go through with her plan, she seeks refuge in a safe house where she meets Z and also runs into Dóra for the first time since they became separated years earlier.
