Marta, a 40-year-old neurosurgeon, falls in love. She leaves her shining American career behind and returns to Budapest to start a new life with the man she loves. But she waits for him at the Liberty Bridge in vain — he does
not appear at their rendezvous. Marta starts to search for him desperately, but when she finally finds him, the love of her life claims that they have never met before.
