    Two women are held prisoner in an unidentified country, for unstated reasons. Both the characters and half the audience are sparated by a dividing wall. Dervla, an Irish woman, is searching for her identical twin sister who went missing when she was eight; Kate, an English photographer, has no memory of life before she arrived at her adopted parents' house at about he same age. As the days progress the two women learn more about each other, and begin to wonder if they have more in common than they thought.
