Storyline

Ten years ago Sarah Hathaway's gifted and troubled son, Thomas, ran away from their home in Los Angeles. Unable to deal with the doubt and guilt, Sarah's life slowly disintegrates ending in a painful divorce from her husband. Sarah refuses to give up hope of ever finding Thomas and hires a private detective who unexpectedly turns up a new clue as to his whereabouts. Convinced her son is now living abroad, Sarah travels to Russia. Against the backdrop of St. Petersburg's stark beauty, Sarah becomes convinced that her son is the artist behind several paintings being sold in an upmarket gallery. Guided by a mysterious mute street boy, Sarah embarks on an desperate and dangerous adventure to discover the truth about the paintings' origins. Sarah becomes involved with Ivan, a Russian psychiatrist. Russian authorities begin to pressure Sarah to leave the country. Sarah is determined not to leave until she finds her son...or the truth.

Dr. Sarah Hathaway trying to find her son, Thomas, who ran away ten years before . She finds a clue in a catalog of a panting exhibition in Russia .
28 February 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

My mother saw the movie before I did. And she told me to see it and try to solve some doubts she had about the movie. I saw it and really got confused during the movie, but I don't know if it's just me, but I'm really fond of this kind of movie that you get really confused , don't understand, but that in the end everything makes senses.....Plus it leaves in the air something with reincarnation, which in my opinion is a great topic.....moreover there's no exact end scene to the movie, there's no end at all.....it solely ends......just when you're trying to puzzle all the facts in your head. I don't know, this movie made me recall that one BIRTH in which the main actress is Nicole Kidman.... Despite in that one the love of her life was to had being born in the body of a boy. In this one there's also a boy but it's her son, and she's not aware of his death.
