Twin brothers Amed and Aziz live in the peaceful shade of their family s orange grove. But when a bomb kills the boys grandparents, the war that plagues their country changes their lives forever. Blood must repay blood, and, in order to avenge their grandparents deaths, one brother must offer the ultimate sacrifice. Years later, the surviving twin now a student actor in a wintry Montreal is given a role which forces him to confront the past. Tremblay, an actor and director himself, poses the difficult question: can art ever adequately address suffering? Both current and timeless, written with the sharp purity of desert poetry, "The Orange Grove" depicts the haunting inheritance of war and its aftermath.

Simple almost childish story, ordinary prose; question of authenticity or cultural appropriateness.
