As children, Rebecca and Tommy establish a fairy-tale romance. After being separated for many years, they are reunited as adults, but their passionate relationship is short-lived when Tommy is killed in a freak car accident. Devastated, Rebecca feels that life cannot go on without him. Her consuming love compels her to bear Tommy’s clone. Despite the great joy of having her Tommy back, Rebecca cannot fully escape the complexities of her controversial decision. When he grows to young manhood in the exact image of her beloved, how will Rebecca explain away the confusing urges that new Tommy doesn’t understand?


Benedek Fliegauf was born in Budapest in 1974. He trained as a stage designer, then worked as assistant director to Miklós Jancsó and Árpád Sopsits. Fliegauf has won prizes from many prestigious European film festivals for his two full-length feature films “Forest” and “Dealer”, and has made a name for himself beyond the borders of his native Hungary. His film “Milky Way” received the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival. Today he embodies the new avant-garde of Hungarian cinema more than any other director.
