Born Wrong depicts a moment in the lives of two adult sisters in which they have to face one another in a shared taxi ride. The interdependently addictive relationship formed as children re-emerges as they take a psychological journey back to their childhood. The film raises the questions: Do we have to accept a person supposedly close to us? Can a relationship between siblings that was molded in childhood be changed in adulthood?
