A personal shopper in Paris refuses to leave the city until she makes contact with her twin brother who previously died there. Her life becomes more complicated when a mysterious person contacts her via text message.
It's been already three months since the sudden death of her 27-year-old twin brother Lewis from a congenital malformation of the heart, and Maureen, a young fashionista, assistant to a celebrity woman and a capable medium, still hasn't made any contact with him. Spending her time between high profile fashion establishments and the abandoned Lewis' house in Paris, Maureen is silently battling with the gut-wrenching grief and sorrow, while at the same time, looking for a sign from her deceased brother after an oath taken between the twins. Aloof, disoriented and still mourning, wraithlike Maureen attuned to the ethereal realm, is inevitably caught between this world and the spiritual, always looking for portals and a sign that would prove her brother right, however, in vain.

I was looking forward to watching another Kristen Stewart film that looked so good from the trailer. How wrong was I?

Get on with it I hear you cry! I have to write 1000 characters for this review so that's why I'm waffling..
The film started off slowly.. very slowly. I remember checking my watch around twenty five minutes then I don't remember a thing. Yes, for the first time ever in a cinema I fell asleep!
