– Ar tiki į Dievą?

– Dievą?

– Jis manyje.

After Anna (by Isabelle Adjani) reveals to her husband, Mark (by Sam Neill), that she is having an affair, she leaves him and their son. After a series of violent confrontations between Mark and Anna, Mark hires a private investigator to follow her. Gradually, he finds out something more inexplicable and shocking than a simple love affair. An allegoric depiction of the emotional extremes experienced during a breakup, Possession is truly an emotional nuclear explosion.
