RED KNOT is a modern exploration of love, isolation and the inescapable vastness of the natural world. Peter (Vincent Kartheiser, “Mad Men”) and Chloe (Olivia Thirlby, JUNO) are a young married couple who jump at the chance to satisfy their wanderlust by taking a belated honeymoon aboard a research vessel bound for Antarctica. As they travel further south, the relationship, like the icy landscapes that surround them, begins to crack and shift, exposing the poles within each of us and the dangerous fault lines that lay just below the surface.
