Lone Twin

Lone Twin

Twins fascinate us. Romulus and Remus. Castor and Pollux. We cannot get enough of them. But what happens when one of them dies?

Lone Twin is a feature-length journey-film, told through the eyes of a filmmaker who lost her twin brother in a tragic accident at age 20.
To understand the impact of being a lone twin for most of her life, she revisits key relationships to understand how the death of her brother affected her life and loves.
She takes us on a journey to four continents, meeting twins between 18 and 80. Even the experts in the film are twins themselves. Lone Twin is a moving yet lighthearted quest for understanding of solitude, togetherness and the universal search for wholeness.
