Inspired by true stories, a lighthouse keeper’s wife, Abbie is a composite character giving voice to her largely unknown experience struggles with her work and her sanity as she cares for her sick husband, confronts secrets hidden in deep waters and navigates an unforgiving new world in 19th century, Maine. Working in isolation and under extreme conditions, embodying feminism long before the word existed. Her strength is stoic and sensual, yet not packaged in sexuality. Nuanced, human and true to her times, Abbie is a female lead rarely depicted on screen.
