eOne Films has unveiled the trailer for the war drama "Twice Born," which is based on a best-selling book and stars Penelope Cruz and Emile Hirsch. It's directed by Sergio Catellitto and is set to hit theaters on December 6th, in limited release.
Plot: 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. Years before, when she was still a student, Gemma traveled to a very different Sarajevo, an electric, youthful city in the midst of the 1984 Winter Olympics. It was then that she began a heated love affair with the young American photographer Diego.
For a time, she was compelled only by the desire to start a family with him; but that desire would soon be complicated by her struggles to conceive, and her hopes of becoming a mother would in turn be interrupted by the coming of the brutal Balkan war and the longest violent siege of a city in modern history. In a series of transforming events, Gemma would finally make it back to Italy but alone with an infant son who has never known the story of who he is or how he was born.
