Masterfully adapted from the acclaimed play by Wajdi Mouawad, Incendies brings to life a moving and epic tale through the unravelling of one woman’s mysterious past. At the reading of their mother Nawal’s (Lubna Azabal) will, twin siblings Simon and Jeanne learn for the first time that they have a brother and that their father, whom they thought was dead, is in fact alive.
Their mother’s last wishes send Jeanne and Simon on an expedition in search of their tangled roots. Shifting back and forth in time, Incendies follows two parallel journeys—the twins’ and Nawal’s own life-changing search to find her son during a time of civil war and sectarian conflict. Through the juxtaposition of these two quests, Villeneuve crafts a powerful story of deep-rooted hatred, never-ending wars and enduring love.
