Ingrid Bergman possessed a natural and vulnerable persona, which was both genuine and alluring. Her cinematic contributions included such movie classics as Casablanca and Anastasia. Bergman's life took many sharp turns and led her in directions she never expected. Plagued by the scandal of her love affair and marriage to Italian film director Roberto Rossellini, her seeming abandonment of her husband Peter Lindstrom and daughter Pia was unexplainable. The turbulent years that followed included Bergman's total withdrawal from Hollywood. After disappearing from the public eye for more than seven years, she reemerged in the movie Anastasia, which sparked a triumphant return to America. Appearing together for the first time, Ingrid's daughters Pia Lindstrom and Isabella Rossellini take a personal look back at their mother's life beyond Bergman's acting career. They tell the story of her life, from her childhood in Sweden to her death at age 67 from breast cancer.
