Germany / France / Switzerland, Winter 2017

48 sultry summer hours sliding ever so smoothly into hell. For the twins Robert and Elena, 48 hours to finally break with childhood. A weekend of time, love, sex, and philosophy. A gas station in the country. Elena and his twin brother Robert: too much of one to become two. And too little of one (mind) to be just one. The end of childhood. The end of their world. A film about a forbidden love.
