You may recall the name Desmond Child from the band Desmond Child and Rouge from the early 70's. But what he is really known for is for being one of the most successful writers of music that has produced over 300 million albums being sold by the likes of Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Cher, Kiss, Kelly Clarkson, Alice Cooper, Ricky Martin, and the list goes on. Fast forward to the present of TWO: The Story Of Roman and Nyro, which documents the 12-year journey of legendary songwriter Desmond Child and his lifelong partner Curtis Shaw, and the extraordinary way they met and connected with Angela Whittaker, the woman who would carry their twin sons, Roman and Nyro, into the world. From preconception through the boys' first 10 years, TWO is the personal and powerful story of these unique individuals whose lives become inextricably woven together in magical and unexpected ways. TWO is testament to the universal power and ultimate triumph of love - that it is love that makes a family, affirming modern families may be modern in their making, but timelessly human at their core.
