A murder in the Hamptons; a millionaire father is dead. Suspicion falls upon his wife and her lover. The stuff tabloid scandals are made of…

But behind the headlines are the ruined lives of two young children – twins Greg and Alexa Ammon, only ten years old. Adopted from the Ukraine when they were infants by Ted and Generosa Ammon, their young lives seem to be in a perpetual state of chaos. Just a few years after Ted’s death, Generosa dies of cancer, and the two are orphaned for the second time.

 

In 2011 Greg and Alexa, now 20, embark on a journey to reconcile with a past that they never knew. Ultimately, brother and sister take the first steps towards realizing the ways in which tragedy and rebirth often go hand in hand, and that understanding one’s place in the world can be both maddeningly complicated and unexpectedly sublime.
