The Square follows Christian, a divorced but devoted father of two, and the respected curator of a contemporary art museum in Stockholm. He's preparing to launch their next show, The Square, a daring installation examining altruism and our duty to help others. However, Christian's own views on social responsibility are put to the test when he becomes the victim of a scam. With pitch-perfect performances, inventive set pieces and a cutting deadpan wit, The Square is a hilarious, unique and often surreal look at idealism and cynicism in the modern world.
