video  


MAGIC KISA is a dark short comedy on the topic of the gemellity : Two twin brothers meet again after years of separation. One leaves prison and the other lined up and founded a family. Associated by long years of swindle and chicaneries, their destinies rock in one night... Stealing of identity, handling and threats of two strange grave-diggers... MAGIC KISA is a trap movie with wicked humor...
