Inspired by true events, PAST LIFE tracks the daring 1977 odyssey of two sisters – one an introverted, ambitious classical music composer, and the other a combative liberal magazine editor. As they try to unravel a disturbing wartime mystery that has cast a shadow over their entire lives, they realize that freedom from the past requires painful sacrifices, as does the struggle to discover one’s unique voice.
