More about David Wnendt's warm-hearted dramedy "The Sunlit Night"
Could a summer get off to a more disastrous start? Artist Frances' planned project falls through, her boyfriend breaks up with her, and while her younger sister blissfully celebrates her engagement, their parents announce the end of their marriage. Frustrated, Frances accepts an art scholarship in Norway without further ado and leaves the confines of New York for the remote, barren Lofoten Islands, where the sun never sets. But new challenges await her in front of the mystical panorama: She must toil with a grumpy artist for a boss, encounters eccentric Vikings and stumbles upon a grieving bachelor.
