When the world around you is collapsing, how can you find the strength to embrace each day with arms wide open? Jack and Meredith are non-identical twins. Their father died before they were born and now they both have to watch as their mother sinks further in to the grip of early-onset dementia. Meredith's husband recently left her and their two children for another woman, and now she's worried she's losing her mind. Jack is Meredith's non-identical twin in every sense: he looks different, thinks differently, and has had a very different life. One day, a throwaway comment starts Jack wondering if his father really died. As they begin to untangle the revelations, the twins are forced to ponder both the past and the future: their memories of their mother, their hopes for finding their father, and the fear of what's in their bloodline. Arms Wide Open is a poignant story of understanding and forgiveness. Jack and Meredith must now choose what they want to remember and what they'd rather forget.
