After their secretive mother, Nawal, passes away the twins Jeanne and Simon find out at the notary that their presumed dead father is still alive and that they have a brother. Nawal’s final request: to deliver both of them a letter… 

 

Confused, they travel towards a fictional country in the Middle-East – a place completely unknown to them –  to uncover the hidden history of their mother. While we follow the twins struggling towards their final discovery, we watch flashbacks in which the dramatic story of the young Nawal unfolds. 

 

Incendies is adapted from Wajdi Mouawad acclaimed theatre play Scorched – also adapted by Ro Theater in 2010 as Branden. When Villeneuve watched the play in 2004 he was astonished by its emotional power. His film Incendies touches the audience with similar feelings leaving you perplext after its climax.
Dennis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049, Enemy) 4th feature Incendies is internationally praised and received many prestigious film awards. Though set against the violent background of a civil war, Incendies isn’t about politics, but about  family.
