Synopsis

Two sisters’ lives are in limbo. In their youth, Nene and Ava were a singing duo. Now there is a child, a job at a café, a boyfriend, and their mother, who is still critical of them. One sister secretly arranges a gig for both of them, and the other smashes her life to pieces because of a feeling. Suddenly it seems possible and necessary to leave one’s comfort zone. Accompanied by an original jazz score, images dance about as they tell the story of a symbiotic love between sisters, of irrationality, of staying close and letting go. The most beautifully cinematic young piece from Germany this year. The most beautifully cinematic young piece from Germany this year.
