In this film we see a female twin performing an eating game with strange rules. They have to throw up a coin, the side of the coin decides who has to eat two portions and the other girl gets nothing. One wonders why one should deal with such a horrible game in this cold environment (ice cellar). In several case studies of twins we noticed that twins often deal with strange eating rules in other to get control over the situation they are in. To see twins deal with these strange eating rules is often very difficult to watch for both parents and outsiders. It shows how complex and difficult it can be to grow up as an individual being part of a twin.
