Traveling to receive an honorary degree, Professor Isak Borg is forced to face his past, come to terms with his faults, and accept the inevitability of his approaching death.

The opening of Wild Strawberries sets the rules of this game: what ensues is a haunting depiction of a man’s battle against the ghosts of time. A psychological road movie, à la Bergman!
