Border

Customs officer Tina (Eva Melander) is know for her extraordinary heightened sense of smell which can detect guilt, fear and unease, which makes her an invaluable border guard. But when Vore (Eero Milonoff) crosses her path, Tina senses something she hasn’t come across before. Although unable to discern Vore's true motives, Tina instinctively finds herself drawn to him. As she pursues a relationship with Vore, her sense of self is irrevocable changed, as she uncovers terrifying secrets about the world around her.

A love story like no other, based on a short story by the writer of Let the Right One In and winner of Cannes 2018 Un Certain Regard, Border conjures an unsettling contemporary folk tale, about love, difference and identity.
