With their relationship on the rocks, young couple Dani and Christian decide to take a break at a fabled Swedish festival that takes place once every 90 years.
There, in a midnight-sun-drenched plain, bordered by forests and lakes, their pastoral paradise slowly evolves into a gruesome nightmare as the seemingly genial locals begin to reveal their barbaric agenda.
A wild ride, accompanied by copious amounts of eerie folk music, Midsommar builds to a crescendo of trippiness. Give in to the sensual surrender!
