Thriller | Sweden

Tina is a customs agent with a preternatural ability to sniff out contraband. Her unusual appearance makes her an outcast, only truly feeling at home when she is alone in the woods. One day, a man by the name of Vore passes by Tina’s customs desk. Vore shares Tina’s strange physical attributes and the two quickly begin a strange romance that ultimately reveals a dark secret about Tina’s past.

From the writer of the genre-bending classic Let The Right One In, Border is brashly unconventional, fusing disparate genres together with absurdly smooth precision. Is this a romance, a crime thriller, a fantasy, or a comedy? It’s ultimately all of the above in one of the most memorable, strange, and unpredictable films you will ever experience.
