Two women looking for themselves, find each other. Their unexpected connection spirals into a passionate lawless union, to reveal itself only to be based on dependence, blackmail and submission. From a mildly satirical and sarcastic perspective, Legoland creates an insight into an honest human struggle between two women; their search for functionality, friendship and freedom in the shadow of urbanisation.
