Once a brilliant playwright, Lisa (Nina Hoss) now lives with her family in Switzerland, but her heart remains in Berlin, beating in time with that of her twin brother Sven (Lars Eidinger), a theatre actor who is suffering from an aggressive type of leukemia. Devoting herself to her brother, Lisa neglects everything else, even risking losing her husband. Courtesy of Film Movement.
Director Lance Oppenheim cracks the manicured facade of The Villages, America's largest retirement community.
