Tinja is desperate to please her image-obsessed mother, whose popular blog 'Lovely Everyday Life' presents their family's idyllic existence as manicured suburban perfection.
One day, after finding a wounded bird in the woods, Tinja brings its strange egg home and nurtures it until it hatches. The creature that emerges becomes her closest friend and a living nightmare.
Completely creepy, but also surprisingly sweet and observant about what it's like to be a 12-year-old girl. This is a brutal and elegantly crafted first feature from Bergholm who toys with multiple genres in exciting and unexpected ways.
