The silent film Twofold is a fanciful tale of a young man who curates the insect collections of a museum. In his spare time, he maintains his own personal collection, not of insects, but of origami birds. He is unaware that these cranes are produced by a young woman who folds the birds in the solitude of a white open-air tower. At times, the cranes begin to fold themselves in a quirky and delicate stop motion dance.
