A mother’s last wishes send twins Jeanne and Simon on a journey to Middle East in search of their tangled roots.

Movie Reviews:

  • Andres Gomez: Great movie for a great and tough story.

    Good photography and cut, the story is well developed and the performances are superb.

    Also, it doesn’t fail on being over dramatic. Just the perfect balance.

    A must to be seen.
