Synopsis

ALOFT tells the story of a struggling mother, Nana Kunning (Jennifer Connelly) and her evolution into a renowned artist and healer. When a young journalist (Mélanie Laurent) tracks down her son Ivan (Cillian Murphy) 20 years after Nana abandoned him, she sets in motion an encounter between the two at the very edge of the earth that will bring the very meaning of their lives into question, and force them to contemplate living life to its fullest, despite the distance between them and the uncertainties littering their paths. Healing will bring warmth, even in the coldest place on earth.
