A visually stunning period drama about determination in the face of adversity.

While working as a maid for a wealthy mercantilist, talented singer Elsie dreams of becoming a professional musician. After falling pregnant with the older man’s child against her will, she is forced into marriage with an aloof stable boy, Jakob. They move together to a derelict farmhouse in a remote village. While Jakob aspires to own a steed and improve his social position, Elsie clings quietly to her passion for music—until a stranger arrives, changing their fates forever.Unfolding primarily within the Alpine wilderness, Jakobs Ross is a visually stunning period drama where rural superstition and violence abound in a sublime, unforgiving environment.

Luna Welder’s hypnotic performance as the determined Elsie reminds us that we must never give up on our dreams.
