Adapted from Michel Faberís captivating short story ĖThe Fahrenheit Twins takes you into the world of two siblings who live with their scientist parents on a remote Arctic exploration station. They spend their days racing huskies across the wintry tundra, rolling in the snow, and recording key events in The Book of Knowledge. Their existence is perfect, until one day their mother unexpectedly takes to her bed and life for the twins will never be the same again.

Funny and savage, The Fahrenheit Twins is a poignantly tender tale of what happens when you canít stop time.
