Synopsis:

A couple of American filmmakers, Chris and Tony, who retreat to the mythical Fårö island for the summer. In this wild, breath-taking 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, the fascination for the island operates on Chris and souvenirs of her first love resurface. Lines between reality and fiction will then progressively blur and tear our couple even more apart.
