Academy Award winner Penelope Cruz (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Volver) and Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild, Killer Joe) star in this epic family mystery that becomes a moving portrait of love, loyalty and the unbreakable bonds of motherhood in a time of war. Based on the runaway European bestseller by Margaret Mazzantini, Twice Born begins as the Italian professor Gemma (Cruz) heads off on a summer vacation to the battle-scarred city of Sarajevo with her discontented teenaged son Pietro. She longs to show him the country where she fell passionately in love with his father, Diego (Hirsch)—but she is about to discover a long-hidden secret, one that will reveal far more to their knotted past than even her haunted memories can disclose.
