gemma : origins

The original Gemma film introduced a story that used sci-fi and fantasy to show how twin sisters started their life together.

A restless night for two sisters prompts a bedtime tale involving Gemma, an other-worldly being whose crash landing and discovery on Earth changes a family forever. “ 

In this sequel, called gemma: origins, the alien secret that one of them refuses to share will be brought out in the open, which finds both girls face to face with an insurmountable challenge. As Izzy (Gemma), is trying to explain her otherworldly origins to her sister Anya, Anya is facing her own fight or flight moment with a fierce competitor at school, Angel. As both girls seek to run away from their problems, they end up running into conflict - forcing them to decide how they will challenge their inner and outer tormentors. Their fate, and perhaps the fate of their planets, rests in their hands.
