A heartbreaking drama about fate, love, moral dilemmas and the lengths to which one couple will go to see their dreams realized. Lighthouse keeper Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender) and radiant, spirited Isabel (Alicia Vikander) live together in married bliss on a remote, rugged island off the coast of Australia. But their windswept world is turned upside down when Isabel learns that she's unable to bear a child. One day, a drifting lifeboat washes ashore with a crying baby in it. The dilemma the couple now face will echo far beyond the island, engulfing and irrevocably impacting their world -- and that of a stranger (Rachel Weisz) -- in a passionate story about love, hope, and a fateful choice.
