A once successful playwright sacrifices her life for her brother and thereby rediscovers what it feels like to be alive.

Lisa, a brilliant playwright, no longer writes. She lives with her family in Switzerland, but her heart remains in Berlin, beating in time with that of her twin brother Sven, the famous theatre actor. Since Sven has been suffering from an aggressive type of leukaemia, the ties between them have grown stronger still. Lisa refuses to accept Sven's fate and moves heaven and earth to get him back on stage. She gives her all for her soul mate, neglecting everything else even risking her marriage. Her relationship with her husband starts to fall apart, but Lisa only has eyes for her brother, her mirror who makes her think of her own deepest aspirations and rekindles her desire to create, to feel alive...
