A haunting, eerie journey to a place where souls stir and hearts go to mend themselves, GENOVA is the dark, brooding voyage of discovery for one family, torn apart by tragedy.
After the sudden death of his wife, the sun drenched vistas and shadow-cloaked alleyways of the Italian town Genova provides Joe (Colin Firth) and his two young daughters a fresh new start. Joe throws himself into study and possible new relationships, the teenage Kelly (Willa Holland - GOSSIP GIRL, THE O.C.) loses herself in the underbelly of this mysterious new world, but it is youngest daughter Mary (Perla Haney-Jardine - KILL BILL VOL. 2) who is affected by this mystifying and alluring paradise in which she sees the ghost of her mother wandering the streets.
