Two sisters, and a mystery, are the focus of today's 2014 Sundance Film Festival trailer.

"The Sleepwalker" begins with a couple, Kaia (Gitte Witt) and Andrew (Christopher Abbott), renovating a house in rural Massachusetts that belonged to Kaia's family. One night, Kaia's sister Christine (Stephanie Ellis) shows up in distress — and the next morning, in comes Christine's fiancé Ira (Brady Corbet). Tension between the two couples grows, and then suddenly one of the four disappears.

The movie is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Mona Fastvold, who co-wrote with Corbet.

"The Sleepwalker" will screen in the U.S. Dramatic competition of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Its first screening is Monday, Jan. 20, at 2:45 p.m. at the Library Center Theatre in Park City.
