The master builder, Halvard Solness (Ralph Fiennes), has a fear of falling.

A self-made man, without professional qualifications, he has achieved domination in the town, but he is increasingly frightened of being displaced by the young.

A woman, Hilde Wangel (Sarah Snook), appears from the mountains, claiming to have known Solness ten years previously, and telling him of a promise he made to her when she was thirteen.
