Christian is the successful curator of a modern art museum. A few days before the opening of the prestigious exhibition “The Square,” he is mugged. Not able to shake it off, Christian embarks on a hunt for the perpetrator and ends up in situations that turn steadily more amusing and make him question his own moral compass. Simultaneously, he has to deal with the PR agency the museum hired to help market the upcoming exhibition, which takes an unexpected turn and plunges both the curator and the museum into crisis.

The Square is a poignant satirical drama reflecting our times, sense of community, moral courage, and the affluent person’s need for egocentricity in an increasingly uncertain world.

“A strikingly influential film of our time.”
