Scorched follows the paths of twins Janine and Simon, who journey back to the Middle East to fulfill the dying requests of their mother, who has not spoken a word for five years. Janine must find their father, who they thought died before they were born; Simon must track down a brother they never knew they had. In their searching, the two siblings begin to uncover the unknown life of their mother, Nawal, a refugee and resistance fighter during her country’s bloody civil war. The French film Incendies (2010) is based on the play.
