Introduced by Professor Lucy Mazdon (Southampton University), this Oscar-nominated story tells of the effect of war across generations.
Following the reading of their mother’s will, twins Jeanne and Simon discover that they have a brother they have never met and that their father is still alive. Their mother’s last wish is that they track down their long lost relatives and deliver sealed letters to them. Spanning continents and decades, this compellingly plotted mystery cross cuts between the twins’ journey of discovery and flashbacks to their mother’s traumatic past.
