SYNOPSIS

Apartment, acting both as a prison and a mirror for a person, becomes the subject of an ongoing moving still life.  A permanently rotating camera gives the viewer a 360 degree view of an apartment and observes the relationships that are a part of a modern family in a conservative society. Twist is a film about people, who live together for years in a lie hiding their sexual orientation and how this lie destroys everything in one instant.
