Tele­vi­sion film about two oppo­site women whose inad­ver­tent switching of shoes leads to an iden­tity swap: they decide to lead each other’s life for one day.
Thalia is a successful model that is almost past her prime; the first assign­ment for an anti wrinkle cream commer­cial is a fact. In a shoe store, this out-and-out urbanite meets her coun­ter­part Aafke, a cryp­togram maker leading a peaceful life in the country, together with her friend the forester. Their inad­ver­tent switching of shoes leads to an iden­tity swap: they decide to lead each other’s life for one day. The film follows the two women in their attempts to survive in the other one’s reality, each being faced with some surprising, some­times absurd situ­a­tions. The rhythm of the sepa­rate worlds deter­mines the rhythm of the editing and the music: the calm, dark and long shots in and around the forester’s dwelling are nicely alter­nated with the dazzling, colourful and high-paced images of the hubbub of big city Rotterdam.
