When teenage twins raised on different sides of the track, discover each other, they decide to swap lives temporarily, just to get a taste of what seems a better life but only one wants to return back.
I think we need to make one of these two the central protagonist, and after the mid-point reversal (MPR – where one of the twins refuses to return to their original home) we need a goal for them.
What sets this apart from other body swap films? What’s the hook? Family films usually have a more obvious message so what’s the message you want this film to convey?
I agree with Mike about focusing on one, and if I did, I think that definitely would be the one who wants to switch back, but can’t. My first impression is that their challenge is to prove their identity in order to get back their old life, but, why would that be so hard ? Is the other teenager some sort of identity fraud mastermind? I think you’d need to go comedy with that approach. The other approach , I guess, is to focus on wanting to not ruin their long lost twin’s life while reclaiming their life. Not sure why the twin couldn’t just pull the other twin across the tracks and welcome them with open arms.
