Their journey takes place against the backdrop of the unique challenges of the year 2020. Each sister is dealing with her own personal demons as she struggles to reconcile with her twin. The song of cicadas accompanies their journey and gives the film a dream like quality. In dreams, cicadas represent personal change and breaking through. Each twin must shed her armor and her mask in order to reconnect with her other half. Ultimately, it is the songs of their mother that helps them escape the prison of their self-imposed solitude.
