In an ancient stone house, twin sisters are immersed in the rhythm of their synchronized and orchestrated life. Whether they’re sleeping in the same bed, preparing tea or washing the linen, everything the sisters do is completely harmonious. One day, however, this harmony is suddenly disrupted. Helpless in the presence of a mysterious force, the twins embark on a long journey to find the cause of the disturbance.
