Based on a true story, Past Life tracks the daring 1977 trans-European odyssey of two sisters – one is an introverted ambitious classical music composer, and the other is a combative politics and porn magazine editor. As they try to unravel a disturbing wartime mystery that has cast a foreboding shadow on their entire lives, they realize that freedom from the shackles of the past requires painful sacrifices, as does the struggle to discover one’s unique voice.
