Soul Mates, by Ryszard Wierzbicki

In South-East Asian countries there is a common habit that older brothers and sisters take care of their younger sibling. Here you see an example of real soul mates, where the older one is protecting a younger one spending almost all the time together. In this particular scene two of them were captured when watching a volleyball game.
