A once successful playwright sacrifices her life and career for her dying brother in My Little Sister, a poignant, affecting drama from writer-directors Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond, nominated for the Golden Bear and Teddy Awards at the 2020 Berlinale. Lisa (Nina Hoss, Phoenix, The Most Wanted Man), once a brilliant playwright, no longer writes. She lives with her family in Switzerland, but her heart remains in Berlin, beating in time with that of her twin brother Sven (Lars Eidinger, Proxima, Never Look Away), the famous theatre actor. Since Sven has been suffering from an aggressive type of leukemia, the relationship between them has become even closer. Lisa does not want to accept this blow of fate, and she does everything in her power to bring Sven back on stage. Her relationship with her husband starts to fall apart, but Lisa only has eyes for her brother, her mirror, who connects her back with her deepest aspirations and rekindles her desire to create, to feel alive again.
