Academy Award® winner Penélope Cruz (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Volver) and Emile Hirsch (Into The Wild, Killer Joe) star in TWICE BORN an 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.
