Agim and Gezim are thirty-something identical twin brothers who have been deaf-mute from birth. They work and live together, sharing a bright and spacious Tirana apartment, in the chirpy and cheerful company of Gezim´s girlfriend Ana. Their self-contained world shatters when they have to face a devastating diagnosis: they both suffer from a rare genetic disease that will have irreversible consequences…
Powerfully conveying the main characters´ situation by remarkable cinematography, use of sound and masterful, chilling central performances from Portuguese actor brothers Rafael and Edgar Morais, this is an utterly absorbing, claustrophobic existential drama. Inspired by a true story.
