UNA follows a young woman’s journey to reclaim her past. Fifteen years earlier,  when she was a minor, Una ran away with an older man, Ray, a crime for which he was arrested and imprisoned.

When she comes across a photo of him in a trade magazine, Una tracks him down and turns up at his workplace. Her abrupt arrival threatens to destroy Ray’s new life and derail her stability. Unspoken secrets and buried memories surface as Una and Ray sift through the wreckage of the past.

Their confrontation raises unanswered questions and unresolved longings. It will shake them both to the core. UNA gazes into the heart of a devastating form of love and asks if redemption is possible.

The film is  an adaptation of Scottish playwright David Harrower’s celebrated, Olivier Award-winning play Blackbird.

Ex-pat Australian director Benedict Andrews is the helmer and Ben Mendelsohn is in the cast playing Ray. Academy Award nominated actress Rooney Mara plays Una.                       

UNA releases nationally on June 22 after its premiere in competition at Sydney Film Festival.
