Flight Animals is an existentialist Swedish full length feature film in the classic Bergman style, about a couple who participate in a silence retreat as a last attempt to save their crumbling relationship. We follow estate owner Karl and his pregnant girlfriend Nathalie during silent meditation, where the boundary between fantasy and reality slowly dissolves. Could this new form of communication force the couple to confront each other anew?
