Nawal Marwan has just passed on after suffering from a stroke at the local pool. The executor of her estate, which was her long time employer and best friend, has called Nawal’s two children in to convey their mother's last wishes. Within minutes of reading the will, Jeanne and Simon Marwan lives will be changed forever. To their surprise they are handed three sealed envelopes. The first one is to be opened by their father, who they believe had passed away during the war in the Middle East. The second one is to be opened by their brother, who they did not know even existed. The final envelope is to be opened by them after they have delivered the other letters. Her final requests are to be buried naked, face down and without a gravestone. Both of the twins had been distraught from their mother and Simon believes this proves she was insane. Although Simon wants nothing to do with the request, Jeanne decides to respect the final wishes. Despite the emotional turmoil she is feeling, Jeanne must search for her real father and the brother she never knew.

To unravel any of the mystery, Jeanne requests the help of her mother’s longtime friend and her brother. Reluctantly, they join her in the Middle East but now they also are intrigued about the family and the circumstances that surrounded them. Before they can even begin to grieve for their mother, they must first uncover the tragedies she suffered in life.
