Join us for a Q&A with director Erica Fae after the film!
Inspired by true stories, a lighthouse keeper’s wife struggles with her work and her sanity as she cares for her sick husband in 19th century Maine. When a mysterious stranger washes up on shore, secrets buried in deep waters come to light, and she is forced to confront both her past and her future. Working in isolation and under extreme conditions, these women -- who inherited their jobs from infirm or deceased husbands or fathers -- were trailblazers, embodying feminism long before the word existed and far afield from the urban, intellectual circles that spawned the women's rights movement.
