Twenty-two-year-old Dominik has a bit of a fetish – the only thing that can arouse him is his own image. So he spends most of his time taking polaroid self-portraits. However, his quiet days filled with self-love are disturbed by the news of the death of Dominik’s loving grandma, and the revelation of two family secrets that come to light as a result of her passing. The first one is that his lesbian mother didn’t die when giving birth to him, but lives in the middle of the forest. The second is that Dominik is not an only child – he has a twin, brought up by a priest in a monastery nearby. The fate thus unexpectedly brings together two brothers with very different natures but identical looks. Will their new brotherly relationship bring them luck, or will it throw them into despair? The well-known enfant terrible Bruce LaBruce doesn’t hold back again, and tries to shock the puritan majority society. However, his latest film has grown darker – will the story of revenge lead to redemption, or to final destruction?
The Q&A with Bruce LaBruce will take place on 11th November 2020 at 6 pm. Watch the Mezipatra LIVE stream from the studio on our Facebook and Youtube.
