About ON BODY AND SOUL
In ON BODY AND SOUL, two introverted people, both workers in a meat-processing plant, one a world-weary financial director, the other a strict quality controller, find out by chance that they share the same dream every night. They are puzzled, incredulous and frightened. As they begin to accept this strange coincidence, they try to recreate in broad daylight what happens in their shared subconscious.
