Set in the 19th Century, The World to Come is a daring romance set against the unforgiving but spectacular landscapes of the American frontier.

Abigail lives on a deeply isolated, rural farm with her husband Dyer. Stoic on the surface, she is unravelling internally. When spring arrives, so do new neighbours, Tallie and her husband Finney. Tallie and Abigail spark up a cautious relationship, which quickly exposes a void in both of their lives they previously didn’t know existed.

Beautifully crafted and visually stunning, The World To Come’s poetic tone feels distinct and fresh.
