The second feature from Norwegian filmmaker Mona Fastvold is a gripping period drama about forbidden romance, set in 1850s America.

In hardscrabble upstate New York, Abigail (Katherine Waterston, Inherent Vice) and her husband Dyer (Casey Affleck, Manchester by the Sea) have carved out some sort of life amongst the harsh winters, with farming life a daily grind of drudgery and repetition.

Entering Abi’s life like the warm glow of sunrise comes Tallie (Vanessa Kirby, Pieces of a Woman), the wife of new neighbour Finney (Christopher Abbott, The Sinner).

With the two women sharing an instant connection which they soon are unable to resist the urge to explore, dare they dream of a future together?
