Twin Sisters 

Twin Sisters


Twin Sisters is a story about loss, reunion and forgiveness between two twin sisters, cruelly separated just before World War II. While one grows up in Nazi Germany and marries a German soldier, the other stays in neutral Holland and falls in love with a Jewish musician, tragically sent to the death camps. On two sides of a great divide, the bond that unites these sisters is soon tested to the limit.
