We didn’t want to be like twins—we wanted to be twins. We wanted to be absolutely identical. But because we hadn’t been born twins, we had to make ourselves the same—and part of that, of course, was having to go through all our most important experiences together.

A classic coming-of-age story about friendship, first love and growing up.  

Rowing partners Johann and Ludwig are best friends, but that’s not enough. To defeat the region’s current champions, identical twins from a nearby town, they must become twins too. Ludwig has a plan: they will eat, sleep, breathe and even think in perfect harmony. Only then will they have a chance of winning.

But Johann has a secret he’s been keeping from his friend—and when Ludwig begins acting strangely, Johann realises that his ‘twin’ wants to put their bond to the ultimate test.
