Maria, who keeps to herself, and quite sociable but solitary Endre are colleagues. They both lead secluded lifes and try to avoid contacting each other. To their own surprise, they find out that every night they dream the same dreams. Seeing it as a sign, Maria and Endre tentatively approach each other and get into a whirlpool of comic, sometimes even shocking, events.
