About Twin Paradox


Twin talk show actresses existentially bothered by being identical finally go their separate ways after years of living together when they find out they are dating the same man. Living apart for the first time, their two lives drift onto totally different paths when both give up the talk show as well. Each has her own personality, and makes her own mistakes. Finally, due to a series of misfortunes, they realize that doing the talk show had once given them the greatest strength, so they return to the stage together.
