Snowland is a haunting film of desolate snowscapes and Bergmanesque artistry. It begins with a writer, Elisabeth, who loses her husband in a car accident. Challenged by the responsibility of raising three children on her own, she succumbs to despair and flees to the snowy wilderness of Lapland to meet her end. Trudging off the highway, she comes across a secluded farm and the dead body of a woman. Searching further, she begins to discover the woman's story and the outlines of an extraordinary life: a love between the woman, Ina, and a seemingly simple herdsman, and a family caught in the throes of the terror wrought by a twisted, dominating father.
