In HATCHING, 12-year-old gymnast, Tinja (Siiri Solalinna), 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, nestles it in her bed, and nurtures it until it hatches.
The creature that emerges becomes her closest friend and a living nightmare, plunging Tinja beneath the impeccable veneer into a twisted reality that her mother refuses to see.
HATCHING is a fascinating portrait of the nature of maternal instinct, as Tinja battles to come to terms with the genuine emotional bond with her grotesque and bloodthirsty new found family while contending with the fraying connection to her own demanding mother.
The film also stars Sophia Heikkilä, Saija Lentonen, and Jani Volanen. Hatching will be in UK and Irish Cinemas from Friday 16th September.
