Adapted from the film by Lars von Trier

A young woman is on the run. She arrives at Dogville – a godforsaken place at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, at the very beginning or the very end of human civilisation. A gang of criminals is after her and she has no other choice than to seek shelter in Dogville. Tom, a young wannabe writer, offers protection and persuades the locals to take up Grace in exchange for her labour. Gradually she is winning over the community, and Tom in particular. When the police turn up in Dogville looking for Grace, the mood swings against the foreigner. Affection turns into hate, love into violence. Grace is the tortured beast – until the story takes an unexpected turn.

Lars von Trier tells the story of the town of Dogville through the medium of epic theatre. His experimental arrangement is a modern narrative of the Passion that gets under your skin, and a gripping drama about power and revenge.
