Karin is a young wife, an older sister and an only daughter. In her kaleidoscopic internal world, the boundaries between different realities blur and shift. Karin's family goes on their annual holiday together, and on a bleak, beautiful island, her husband, father and brother struggle over the best way to help her. But as events spiral out of control, Karin realizes that she must take command of her own destiny. This unique stage adaptation was personally approved by Bergman.
