After lounge singer Sophie (Katja Riemann) loses her mother, her father (Matthias Habich) discovers that a New York-based opera singer, Caterina (Barbara Sukowa,) might be her identical twin. At his urging, Sophie travels to Manhattan to meet Caterina and unravel the family mystery. Long revered as one of Germany’s most distinguished talents, actress/filmmaker Margarethe von Trotta (Vision, Hannah Arendt) was inspired after her own late-in-life discovery of a half-sister.
