Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman stars as a delicate young widow who is on the verge of a new life when a solemn little boy appears, claiming to be the reincarnation of her dead husband. Could this child truly be her husband, returned to her? Can she refuse the chance to again experience the love she still feels for him? Ten years after the sudden death of her husband (Michael Desautels), Anna (Nicole Kidman) is finally ready to emerge from the shadow of grief and marry Joseph (Danny Huston), who has patiently courted her for three years. But a 10-year-old boy (Cameron Bright) tells her he is her husband and warns her not to marry Joseph. Now, despite the concern of her friends, family and fiancé, Anna develops an increasingly stronger bond with the haunting young boy in the metaphysical mystery of Birth.
