When they suddenly come across a lost orphan infant, a WWI veteran-turned-lighthouse keeper and his barren wife (played by Michael Fassbender and Oscar-Winner Alicia Vikander) make a decision that will forever change their lives in the new full-length trailer for the heart-rending period drama "The Light Between Oceans."

Based on the best-selling novel by M. L. Stedman, and directed and written for the screen by Derek Cianfrance (The Place Beyond the Pines, Blue Valentine), the film asks, what would you do if you discovered your baby actually belongs to someone else? That someone being a grieving widow who believes her infant daughter was lost at sea years ago.

Also starring Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz, "The Light Between Oceans" will be released in theaters on September 2.

In the years following World War I, Tom Sherbourne (Michael Fassbender), a young veteran still numb from his years in combat, takes a job as lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, a remote island off the coast of Western Australia. As the island's sole inhabitant, he finds comfort in the monotony of the chores and the solitude of his surroundings. When he meets the daughter of the school’s headmaster, Isabel Graysmark (Alicia Vikander), in the local town of Partageuse on the mainland, Tom is immediately captivated by her beauty, wit and passion, and they are soon married and living on the island. As their love flourishes, he begins to feel again, their happiness marred only by their inability to start a family, so when a rowboat with a dead man and infant girl mysteriously washes ashore, Isabel believes their prayers may have finally been answered. As a man of principle, Tom is torn between reporting the lost child and pleasing the woman he loves, and against his better judgment he agrees to let Isabel raise the child as their own, making a choice with devastating consequences.
