Shortly after young aspiring journalist Arvid Stjärnblom arrives in Stockholm, he meets Lydia Stille, the daughter of a famous landscape painter. They immediately fall in love, but Swedish society at the dawn of the 20th century does not make it easy for young lovers to marry for love alone. The two part ways, only to meet again by chance ten years later. Still wildly infatuated with one another, the couple engages in a secret relationship. A SERIOUS GAME is a romantic and engaging drama about the inscrutability of love and passion.
