Christian is a divorced but devoted father of two, and the respected curator of a contemporary art museum in Stockholm.
He’s gearing up to launch their next show ‘The Square’, a daring installation examining altruism and our duty to help others. However, Christian’s own views on social responsibility are put to the test when he becomes the victim of a scam, forcing him to question the world around him and his place in it.
Meanwhile, a shocking viral stunt cooked up by the museum’s PR agency is met with public outcry, sending Christian into an existential crisis.
With pitch-perfect performances and a cutting deadpan wit, The Square is a hilarious, unique and often surreal look at idealism and cynicism in the modern world.
