At a remote lake house, a filmmaker named Allison (Aubrey Plaza) arrives to play house guest to troubled couple Blair (Sarah Gadon) and Gabe (Christopher Abbott), who have eschewed their life in the city after Gabe inherited his family's lakeside country lodge. Battling writer's block, Allison sparks a calculated game of desire and jealousy in pursuit of a new work that blurs the boundaries of autobiography and invention.

BLACK BEAR explores the complex nature of relationships, gender dynamics, and the erratic nature of love as it traces the conflict between our lust and our longing for internal harmony.
