Tinja is a young gymnast living with her family in the suburbs, forever trying desperately to please her mother – a woman obsessed with sharing the perfection of her idyllic existence on her blog & social media. When one day Tinja finds a strange egg in the woods and brings it home to look after it, the stage is set for a weird clash that’ll expose this family’s true face to themselves.

Director Hanna Bergholm’s astonishing debut is a stunning satire deeply draped in the true language of horror films as well as an astute examination of the jagged edges of mother-daughter relationships. Blessed by brilliant performances from a game cast, HATCHING heralds the arrival of a new, brave voice within genre cinema.
