Sofie and Daan are twins, but that’s all they are. They can’t seem to get along, their lifestyles are just too different. When their biological mother is hospitalized in America with a complicated bone fracture, Sofie and Daan decide to go there to help out. Jackie turns out to be completely different from what they expected. Sofie assumed they could ‘quickly’ fly Jackie to the rehab center, but Jackie is not allowed to fly, because of a ruptured eardrum, and cannot travel by car either. So they’re forced to drive an old trailer across the New Mexico desert to get her to her destination. Along the way they get to know themselves, each other and their special mother.
