An American couple, Chris and Tony, retreat to the mythical Fårö island for the summer. In this wild, breathtaking landscape, where Bergman lived and shot his most celebrated pieces, they hope to find inspiration for their upcoming films.

As days spent separately pass by, Chris becomes increasingly fascinated with the island, and souvenirs of her first love resurface. Gradually, the lines between reality and fiction blur, threatening to tear the couple apart.

'Wasikowska and Danielsen Lie deliver extraordinarily layered performances, channelling the familiarity of people who have already lived a major story together' - Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies
