Twin Sisters


film-roll Norway / Color / 58' / 2013

In 2003, two babies were found in a cardboard box in a Chinese village and were adopted into two different corners of the world. One of them ended up in a little vil-lage in Norway, surrounded by high mountains and deep fjords. The other one went to a big city in the USA. The adoptive parents had no idea that there was a twin sister. Their sisterhood was meant to be kept a secret. However, destiny had other plans… This is story about sibling love, human dilemma and the games of fate.
