Blind pianist Sofia (Natalie Dormer) overhears a struggle in the apartment above hers that leads to the death of her neighbour, Veronique (Emily Ratajkowski). It is the start of a journey that pushes Sofia out of her depth and into contact with Veronique’s father, Milos Radic (Jan Bijvoet), a Serbian businessman and alleged war criminal accused of committing acts of genocide during the Bosnian war, who is now living in London under political asylum. Blind to the truth, Sofia risks her life in search of answers and is plunged into a shady underworld of corruption, violence, and blackmail.
As secrets from her own past become intertwined with Radic’s inner circle of deceit, Sofia’s own agenda is revealed, as she hunts for revenge.
In Darkness was written and directed by Anthony Byrne (Peaky Blinders, Ripper Street) and features an ensemble cast including Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones, Deadpool), Emily Ratajkowski (We Are Your Friends, Gone Girl) and Joely Richardson (Red Sparrow, The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo).
In Darkness will arrive in the UK and Irish Cinemas sometime 2018.
