Psychology student Dani Ardor (Florence Pugh) is traumatized after her sister Terri kills herself and their parents by filling their home with carbon monoxide. The incident strains Dani's relationship with her emotionally distant boyfriend, anthropology student Christian Hughes (Jack Reynor). She later learns that Christian and his friends Mark (Will Poulter) and Josh (William Jackson Harper) have been invited by their mutual Swedish friend Pelle (Vilhelm Blomgren) to attend a midsummer celebration at Pelle's ancestral commune, the Hårga, in Hälsingland. The celebration occurs only once every 90 years and Josh, also an anthropology student, wants to write his thesis on it. Christian had hidden the trip from Dani, wanting to break up with her before leaving, but invites her along after she finds out about it.
The group flies to Sweden and arrives at the commune, where they meet Simon (Archie Madekwe) and Connie (Ellora Torchia), an English couple from London who were invited by Pelle's communal brother Ingemar (Hampus Hallberg). He offers the group psychedelic mushrooms, and Dani has hallucinations of Terri while under the drug's influence. Tensions rise after the group witnesses an ättestupa, a tradition which sees two commune elders killing themselves by leaping from a cliff onto a rock. When one of the elders survives the fall, the commune members mimic his wails of agony and crush his skull with a mallet, while commune elder Siv (Gunnel Fred) attempts to calm Dani and her friends by explaining that this is a normal thing every member does when they reach the age of 72. The scene disturbs the group but they decide to stay long enough for Josh to finish his thesis, while Simon and Connie decide to leave. An elder tells Connie that Simon has already left without her. Confused and suspicious, Connie decides to leave on her own; later, a woman's scream is heard in the distance.
