This is a variation on the legend of the Flying Dutchman set in the 1920s. The sea captain Jacob Störr makes a bet with a friend that he will marry the first woman who enters the café. In walks Lizzy.  

Milán Füst’s novel was first published in Hungary in 1942 but was only translated into English in the late 1980s, when it became a literary sensation.

Hungarian director Enyedi’s previous film, On Body and Soul, won the Berlinale’s Golden Bear in 2017 and was nominated in the Oscar foreign-language category (since rebranded best international film).
