Éva and Veronika Kolozs are 95 years old and are the oldest twins in Hungary. Once they were world-famous ballerinas and danced on the world renowned stages in Germany and throughout Europe. But after the Second World War broke out, their careers were curbed dramatically. They suffered under the control of both fascism and communism: they were forcefully relocated, lost their jobs, homes, their lovers, and finally their dreams. What remained deeply engrained in their souls is their love for each other. The short documentary presents a subjective view of the 20th century history using memories, private photographs, diaries, drawings, original archives, and experimental animations.
