Twin bothers Ethan and Jack struggle over their birthright - ownership of their father's business, The Abrams Group, and a treasured family heirloom. But when their father Ike dies, Ethan and Jack find nothing is as they thought it would be. An irreversible decision is made by their mother that damages the very fabric of the family. Ethan finds he must confront the choices of the past and the hurt and anger that poison his spirit. If he succeeds, he will discover the power that forgiveness holds. Desires is a story about deep, family struggles and the power of forgiveness. The film's core is centered on a conflict between two fraternal twin brothers, Ethan and Jack. The plot is loosely paralleled to the biblical story of feuding brothers Jacob and Esau. Ethan (charismatic and athletic)and Jack (studious and quiet)have been in constant competition for their father's affections since childhood. Tensions rise when the patriarch must decide which son will inherit the family business and a precious family heirloom. Tension becomes bitterness and hatred when their mother proves treacherous. The family must find a path to redemption and healing before its too late.
