Katarina is a restless, beautiful young woman who is trapped in a mundane daily routine and a passionless relationship. She meets Adam, a celebrated conductor at a prestigious opera house and climbs the social ladder in search of an enlightened, heightened, and pure reality. 'Beloved' depicts the challenges of a modern woman in search of herself and the shifting power dynamic that exists between Katarina and a successful older man that she admires.
