The trailer depicts a soft-spoken and ambitious student (Swinton Byrne), who gradually begins to discover her own voice as a creative artist through the tumultuous relationship with Burke's character. Tilda Swinton plays Honor's over-protective mother. As the romantic couple fall deeper into their problematic relationship, both come very close to destroying each other's dreams.

The trailer is visually stunning, with lazy yet picturesque long shots. David Raedeker's camera work seems on point to establish the emotional upheaval amidst the duo. The Souvenir received an almost-unanimous critical acclaim and even won the Grand Jury Prize - World Cinema at Sundance, reports Collider.

Martin Scorsese and Andrew Starke serve as executive producers for The Souvenir, a film which is said have been based on the Hogg's own experiences.

The Souvenir is scheduled to hit the theatres on 17 May.
