Abraham and Shraga, two orthodox jew twins, live at the house they inherited in New York. Since their parents died 10 years ago, they have gathered all kinds of trash and objects, developing some sort of diogenes syndrome. Tired of it, the upstairs neighbour threatens to stop paying the rent if they don’t agree to take radical measures. With no jobs, and facing the possibility of losing their only source of income, and therefore, the house, Abraham and Shraga agree to have a cleaning company coming inside the house. The process quickly becomes an invasion of their intimacy and privacy, against which the twins are forced to fight for their memories, growing up, despite their age, and discovering a new way to live life.

Founded in 2006, Inicia Films is an independent Spanish production company based in Barcelona. After many years of being involved in the audiovisual production industry, Valérie Delpierre decided to create her own company with the aim of developing projects, focused on international co-productions and the development of new talent. Our feature films, short films and documentaries have been selected and awarded in many international festivals, including the Berlinale (Best Opera Prima Award 2017 for Carla Simón’s Estiu 1993) and La Semaine de la Critique of Cannes (Leica Discovery Prize 2017 for Laura Ferrés’ The Disinherited). We have produced documentaries with different European production companies and with the support of TV channels such as RTVE, TVC, ARTE, ZDF and CBC as well as regional, national and European institutions. At this moment, we are developing two fiction feature films, two hybrid short films and a television documentary with the support of TVE.
