Lilium -Sims 2 (or just Lilium as the video calls it) is a short The Sims 2 machinima. It tells a tale of a wealthy isolated family circa 1900 and a taboo attraction between the two siblings.

Isis and Horitio are two siblings who live in the woods with their father. They live in seclusion and, as a result, the two have always been very close. As the duo age, Isis begins feeling attracted to her brother. Their father notices this and decides to put an end to it. His children are of marrying age and so it's now time to introduce them to their future spouses. In come the siblings Estella and Baltazar, who Isis and Horitio's father had arranged to be their spouses. While Estella and Horitio fall in love easily, Iris and Baltazar's relationship is not nearly as comfortable, Iris loves her brother too much and Baltazar is a brutish, abusive husband. Ultimately, after years apart, Isis visits her brother again. It doesn't end well for any of them.
