On a remote farm in the 1850s upstate New York, Abigail is defeated by the rural life on the farm with her husband Dyer and grieves the loss of their daughter. When spring arrives her mundane life is interfered when the beautiful Tallie with her golden red hair, moves into the neighbouring farm with her husband Finney.
Abigail and Tallie instantly develop a rare connection, filling a void and discovering emotions hitherto unknown to them. On the surface, Abigail appears stoic and shy, but underneath she burns with fierce desire. While Tallie is seemingly heroic and emotionally frank. How will they tolerate Finny’s jealousy when their irresistible taste of love is unstoppable?

Mona Fastvold artfully manages to adapt this poetic screenplay between the two characters into frames of pure and stunning magic. The music composition is piercing and unique, and it all comes together in an amazing and deeply compelling film about living to love or living to survive.
