Visual artist and film director Maja Borg is dealing with the aftermath of a destructive relationship, whereas having been wounded both psychologically and physically they need to find new methods of dealing with trauma and experiencing intimacy. By learning techniques from queer BDSM practice to re-establish personal boundaries, and by reopening a long forgotten Christian heritage, they adopt rituals and play to understand their own longings, forcing them to meet their own darkest places in order to move on.
Through Borg’s journey, the film presents stories of queer BDSM practitioners in three different communities. Intertwined with the Christian exploration, it investigates what “play” means to the characters in their personal, professional, and spiritual lives.
PASSION is a film about longing, healing and belonging.
