EN - Antwerp. An evening in March. Charlie and Hannah, two girls in their mid-twenties, are strolling through the city. Charlie is witty, inaccessible and - in her own words - fundamentally dialectic. Hannah is chatty, neurotic, always hungry and always in love. Things take an unexpected turn when one of the girls conjures magical candy that makes body parts talk, pineapples fly and through which a trip to another galaxy becomes the easiest thing in the world. A film about all the anxieties, contradictions and portions of gin and tonic which shape life at 26, and about that magic nocturnal moment in which anything can happen. Plus a few stolen kisses.

NL - Een vrijdagavond. Charlie en Hannah, twee jonge vrouwen, kuieren door de stad. Charlie is geestig, onbereikbaar en - in haar eigen woorden - fundamenteel dialectisch. Hannah is praatziek, altijd hongerig en altijd verliefd. De avond neemt een onverwachte wending wanneer één van de meiden een magisch snoepje bovenhaalt, dat lichaamsdelen doet praten, ananassen vliegen en een tripje door het universum de normaalste zaak van de wereld maakt. Een film over alle verlangens, tegenstrijdigheden en porties gin and tonic die het leven vorm geven op je 26ste. En over dat magische, nachtelijke moment waarop alles kan gebeuren.
