Shadowlands is an anthology style film that explores love in three separate stories---a couple renegotiating a relationship, a narcissist grasping to comprehend it, and star-crossed lovers mourning its loss. The film begins in 1928 with Alex, a plastic surgeon hell-bent on perfection, hosting a house party with an assortment of colorful guests. Amid romantic misfires it becomes apparent that the only person Alex is interested in is himself. Fast forward to 1951 and a gay military couple are exploring the idea of opening their relationship while on a remote camping trip when they encounter a mysterious stranger. The stories conclude in 2018 with a painter who is mourning the loss of his lover and  becomes obsessed with creating a realistic painting of him. The resulting piece is so beautiful and life-like that he is drawn under its spell.
