Two emotionally charged love triangles collide as Elena accompanies her husband on a work trip, falling for the sublime beauty of Patagonia and the man who guides them through it. Meanwhile, Albert, a director returning home to Los Angeles, adjusts to being a single father in the wake of his failing marriage. As both characters come to terms with their realities, bonds are forged and beginnings found. Inspired by Atom Egoyan’s seminal film Calendar, Somewhere Beautiful explores the space between the twilight of one connection and the dawn of another.

Born in Iran. A graduate of the University of Southern California Film Program, Albert Kodagolian began his career as a producer on several independent feature films before moving into cinematography.
