Synopsis

 Sofie and Daan are twins, but that is all there is to it. They cannot seem to get along, their lifestyles are just too different. When their biological mother has been hospitalised in America with a complicated bone fracture, Sofie and Daan decide to go and help her. Jackie turns out to be anything but the mother the sisters had expected her to be. Sofie figured they could ‘quickly’ fly Jackie to the rehabilitation centre, but because Jackie cannot drive and, due to a ruptured eardrum, cannot fly either, they are forced to drive an old trailer home straight through the New Mexico dessert. Along the way they get to know themselves, each other and their special mother.
