Thelma has just started university. She is enjoying the capital's whirlwind and separation from her religious parents for the first time. It is not easy for this introverted and fragile girl to make friends, however. But her world changes dramatically when she meets the beautiful and cordial Anja. As their mutual feelings grow, Thelma struggles with her religion, temptation, overwhelming emotions, and the mysterious powers that completely engulf her. In an effort to explain the supernatural and terrifying events unfolding around her, she delves deep into her heart and dark family past. The mystical, unsettling and mesmerizing thriller about the darkest human desires and fateful love is the fourth film by Joachim Trier, one of the most distinctive Scandinavian filmmakers today. The film was successfully presented at the Toronto and Haugesund festivals and will represent Norway at this year's Oscars.
