SYNOPSIS: It’s 1910 and Sweden’s most esteemed playwright and novelist, August Strindberg, is nearing the end of his life. His interests have drifted from writing to the more mystical arts of alchemy. His young apprentice, Björne, assists with the intricate experiments.
Björne’s focus, however, is divided between his work and the love of a young woman, Katina. When she unexpectedly leaves for a better life in America, he falls into a deep depression. To Björne's surprise, Strindberg seems genuinely concerned and offers to assist the young man in his pursuit of Katina.
Fast forward 100+ years. Katina’s aged granddaughter, Agda, lives the life of a recluse. And yet because of recent events, she is forced to confront a long-forgotten family history. Apparently, Strindberg’s efforts to help Björne were not as altruistic as they first appeared. Now Agda must face the ghostly truth
