A dangerous conflict between control and freedom, intimacy and alienation.

Ennis, a stern, hard-working dairy farmer, struggles to maintain control of his family and his environment. Meanwhile, his wife Christina retreats into herself, progressively disconnecting from him and their five children. As tensions increase, each member of the family must confront his or her own yearnings and anxieties. Stunningly photographed and beautifully acted, Medeas is a spellbinding exploration of lives in a perilous state of geographical and psychological isolation. [15]
