Boxed into twin rooms yet separated by a thin wall, a brother and
sister communicate their desires. Emotional interdependence transforms the characters from healthy young people into a convalescent couple that physically need one another to perform simple bodily functions, such as breathing. Stunning, provocative and perplexing, the pair is irresistible to watch as they become
increasingly reliant on one another.
