Synopsis

It’s mid-summer and two twin brothers are patiently waiting for their mother to come home following cosmetic surgery.

Her personality change will have the kids wondering if she’s really their mother or is actually an impostor. Psychological horror produced by Ulrich Seidl, one of the great European filmmakers.
