Mark your calendars for the SF premiere of TWO: THE STORY OF ROMAN AND NYRO. TWO is a touching documentary about the lives of twin sons born to acclaimed songwriter Desmond Child (worked with Ricky Martin, Jon Bon Jovi and more) and his lifelong partner Curtis Shaw. The film also features Angela Whittaker, the woman who carried their twin sons, Roman and Nyro. What’s captured is a moving story of family unity, parenthood and love from preconception through the boys’ first 10 years,
