Silent Light Overview

Johan (Cornelio Wall Fehr) is in the midst of a marital crisis with his wife Esther (Miriam Toews), because he believes himself to be deeply in love with Marianne (Maria Pankratz), with whom he has been having an affair. There is no deception, however.

Johan has been upfront with Esther from the start. Yet despite his belief that Marianne is his ideal mate and "natural woman," his desire to preserve the family's stability and, most profoundly, his great love for his wife and children, prevent him from starting a new life with his mistress.
