Using variables across modules

I'm having some trouble understanding how Python handles variables
across multiple modules. I've dug through the documentation, but I
still find myself at a loss.

When you import a module, are you creating an instance of the
variables within? For instance, if I have one file, "",
which contains "myvar = 0", and I import it into both "" and
"" with the line "from variables import *", and then set myvar
in "" and "" to different values, will each file have a
different value for myvar? If so, how can I ensure that a change to
myvar in "" is reflected by ""? Or am I completely off
