James (James McAvoy) is a British agent working undercover as a water engineer. Danny (Alicia Vikander) is a bio-mathmatician working on a deep-sea diving project to explore the origin of life on our planet. They meet by chance in a remote hotel in Normandy and fall in love almost against their will, knowing they both have to prepare for their respective dangerous missions. Both characters are subject to different kinds of isolation and their determination to reconnect becomes as much an existential journey as a love story. Starring Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander & James McAvoy. Directed by Academy Award Nominee Wim Wenders.
