Constellations tells the tale of Marianne (a physicist) and Roland (a beekeeper). They hit it off at a party…or perhaps they don’t. One of them is married…or maybe they’re both single. Nick Payne’s Constellations takes this chance encounter between two lost souls and opens the door to the infinite possibilities of their relationship. Breathlessly navigating through the spellbinding and romantic journey of being in love, Constellations looks at how the tiniest change in the details of our lives can lead us on completely different paths.
