SISTERS

Info

Three sisters grow up in a broken home. They are at each other’s mercy and survive as long as they are together. But is their loving connection strong enough to endure their gloomy surroundings?

SISTERS tells the tale of three sisters growing up in a dysfunctional family. A family without a mother. Sarah, Vera and Julia are at each others mercy and survive as long as they are together. With their movements and imagination they make their world bigger, beautiful and bearable. They play, tickle each other and sometimes exclude one another, but one thing is certain; their connection is stronger than diamond. But are the connection and the magic of their movements strong enough to overcome the reality of their existence?
