Parallel Lives

dir. Kristof Bilsen

How do you grieve when you are in your late twenties? Four years ago, Kristof lost his sister. She shows up in home videos and pictures. Kristof decides to visit his parents to ask them how they cope with the absence of their daughter. Back in the UK, a rather unexpected visit questions his memories of her.
