Famed stage stress Elisabet Vogler (Ullmann) suffers a moment of blankness during a performance and the next day lapses into total silence. Advised by her doctor to take time off to recover from what appears to be an emotional breakdown, Elisabet goes to a beach house on the Baltic Sea with only Alma (Andersson), a nurse, as company. Over the next several weeks, as Alma struggles to reach her mute patient, the two women find themselves experiencing a strange emotional convergence.

Critics have called Persona Ingmar Bergman's magnum opus and he won the National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Director for the film.
