This majestic, moving adaptation of Franco-Lebanese playwright, Wajdi Mouawad’s play Scorched is one of the greatest films of the last decade, having garnered numerous awards and an Oscar nomination in 2011. It is a powerful tale of family ties, duty and the inescapable links between past and present. Following the death of their mother, twins Jeanne (Melissa Desormeaux-Poulin) and Simon (Maxim Gaudette) are shocked to discover that they have a brother and that the father they believed to be dead is still alive. Their mother’s final wish is that they should deliver sealed letters to the two men. Jeanne feels compelled to honour this request and thus begins an incredible journey to her mother’s homeland in Lebanon and an equally enthralling voyage into the family’s extraordinary history.
