After 7 years of silence, Gabor, living a lonely life currently in Paris, sends
a message to his brother Janos who lives in Budapest with his wife and child.
He presents a video camera and a cassette to him. From then onwards they keep
in touch with each other through videocassettes.
All their past and present as well as their human relations are revealed from these "video-letters" and old amateur films; we come to know that Janos's wife, Judit, was the common love of their young hood, and that her child's father might even be Gabor. Further, we come to know that their mother loves the son living in Paris more than the other one, and that their father died under unclear circumstances.
A fierce "battle" starts between the two brothers through these video-letters for Judit and the child. In this struggle they sacrifice everything and everybody and the two men become a Cain and Abel of the modern times.
The film is a modern adaptation of the classical myth and also a meditation on the relationship between film and video as well as on the human failures of obsession and the mistakeability of reality and fiction.
