Hungarian producer Lili Horvát's mysteriously named Preparations to Be Together For an Unknown Period of Time follows Márta (Natasa Stork), a fruitful neurosurgeon from Budapest at the top of her professional game subsequent to building a fortunate vocation in New Jersey. Becoming hopelessly enamored with individual Hungarian János (Viktor Bodó) after they meet at a work gathering in the United States, Márta chooses to drop everything and move back home to seek after the romance further. Be that as it may, when János neglects to show up at their set up gathering put on Budapest's renowned Liberty Bridge, Márta's fantasies of her new life breakdown around her considerably further when she stands up to János and he neglects to perceive her.
On the cusp of turning forty, Márta is unmistakably in a condition of transition at this crossroads in her day to day existence. While her first impulse is to get back to America, something stops her and she chooses to remain in Budapest. She acknowledges a task that is definitely less great than the one she left abroad, presently forced to substantiate herself to lesser-qualified male associates. She moves into a scarcely livable loft that she shows no interest in embellishing as she balances her new work existence with her proceeding with fixation on János and visits to a clinician, the last of which generally structure the film and permit us knowledge into Márta's inward musings about what's going on, contemplations which she in any case keeps painstakingly camouflaged.
It is in these meetings that we learn about Márta herself, yet about what could indeed have prompted this profoundly savvy, fruitful woman removing her life for a man who doesn't perceive her. From the start, she says that she believes János when he says he doesn't have any acquaintance with her, yet at the same time she drives forward.

Plot-wise, Preparations to Be Together For an Unknown Period of Time is a film temptingly simple to uncover too much about, which in a film where the interaction of disclosure is the essential issue would significantly eliminate many of the components that make it so captivating. Is Márta an untrustworthy narrator, and in the event that she is, does she by any chance know it? Or then again is there something more muddled having an effect on everything?
Shunning the ordinary prosaisms connected to this figure of speech, what we find here rather is a neurological investigation of the smash turned-romantic-fixation that turns around the subjectivity of beginning to look all starry eyed at. In Preparations to Be Together For an Unknown Period of Time, Lili Horvát grants her hero the privilege to her abnormal circumstances and permits her the poise of sorting it out herself. It forcefully dismisses conventional standards and assumptions and is even more confounding and genuine for it.
