Clara tells the story of Isaac Bruno (Patrick J. Adams), an astronomer with an obsession for searching the cosmos for signs of life beyond Earth, despite the collapse of his personal life right in front of him. His relentless research of the night sky leads him into the path of unqualified but confident young research assistant named Clara (American actress Troian Bellisario). Working together, their efforts ultimately leads Isaac to a shocking and profound scientific discovery. Ultimately a love story, in the writer-director’s own words, “CLARA isn’t about the search for life, it is about two lost people who find each other while searching for it.”
