After 18 years of marriage and two kids, Alec (Skarsgård), an American living in Greece, has an affair
with a co-worker (Unger). Guilt-ridden, he breaks off the affair and admits his
sin to his wife (Rampling). An accidental meeting with the co-worker rekindles the affair and
this time he leaves his family. Stricken again by guilt, he returns, but this time, his wife has moved on.
Throughout the film, colors that Alec sees around him become symbols representing himself and his lover.
