Incendies (2010)

Twins Jeanne (Mélissa Désormeaux-Poulin) and Simon (Maxim Gaudette) each receive letters written by their mother before she passed away, which instruct them how to find family they never knew they had. Adapted from Wajdi Mouawad’s acclaimed play, Incendies is a powerful Canadian drama telling the tale of two siblings journeying to the Middle-East and learning about their mother’s tangled past.
