Half-Sister is a pitch-black comedy-drama in which estranged half siblings find themselves obliged to share an apartment. Unflinching in their mutual hatred, the only things Irena and Nêza have in common are their combative personalities, their acerbic wit and their father’s adultery. But as they struggle under the weight of unhealed wounds, their antipathy gives way to a growing rapport in this fresh analysis of dysfunctional families from the director of the critically acclaimed Spare Parts.
