WHEN NAWAL, an Arab immigrant to Canada, passes away, she leaves in her will a request. Her adult children, Simon and Jeanne, must take two envelopes to the Middle East, one each for their father and brother. But as far as the siblings know their father is dead, and they have no brother. This is an unforgettable epic about the search for the past, about family, roots, never-ending wars and enduring love.
