A brother and a sister on the verge of fifty…

Alice is an actress, Louis was a teacher and a poet.

Alice has hated her brother for over twenty years.

They haven’t seen each other in all this time – when Louis ran into the sister by chance in the street, she didn’t greet him and ran away…

In Frère & Sœur, the brother and the sister will be brought to cross during the death of their parents.
