Based on a true story, Past Life tracks the daring late 1970s odyssey of two sisters — an introverted aspiring classical musician and a rambunctious scandal sheet journalist — as they try to unravel a shocking wartime mystery that has cast a dark shadow on their entire lives.
In the fascinating new film from director Avi Nesher (The Wonders), two Israeli sisters delve into the dark mystery of their father’s former life in Poland during World War II.
