The summer of 2018 was hot. For the sisters Jule and Nora, this means: whenever you are Together, just a few steps away from your quarters at Kottbusser Tor in Berlin-Kreuzberg. They hang out, deal with your mobile phones, have fun with the boys. In between, there is also a school, but runs more like this.
