Sibling Synergy
The show tracks eight individuals from far-flung corners of the globe — including Mumbai, San Francisco, Berlin, Mexico City and Reykjavik — who abruptly find themselves psychically and often physically connected through a mysterious evolutionary leap. As they learn to bond and come to each other’s aid, they also discover they’re being targeted by a mysterious organization bent on their destruction. Lana and Lilly Wachowski were already iconic as filmmakers and openly trans women, but their series’ bold assertion that people can connect intimately in a way that transcends sexuality, gender and race breaks new ground.Check out the cast rocking it out in Rio last summer during Gay Pride there:
