Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve directs this powerful drama based on the play by Wajdi Mouawad. When their Lebanese-Canadian mother dies, twins Jeanne and Simon Marwan (Melissa Desormeaux-Poulin and Maxim Gaudette) are puzzled by the unusual requests made in her will. Among the papers she leaves behind are two sealed letters: one to be delivered to a brother the twins did not know they had, and the other to their father, whom they had presumed dead. To deliver the letters the twins travel to Lebanon, where the traumatic and tumultuous past experiences of their mother (Lubna Azabal) are gradually revealed.
