"An exciting, intelligent mix of romance, Nordic noir, social realism and supernatural horror that defies and subverts genre conventions" - Alissa Simon, Variety

Based on a novel by Let The Right One In author John Ajvide Lindqvist, this genre-defying, Cannes award-winning Scandinavian fantasy takes a curious look at the boundaries of human/inhuman, right/wrong, duty/desire and male/female.

Tina (Eva Melander with excellent prosthetics) is a Swedish customs officer with a nose for trouble - quite literally, as her heightened sense of smell is able to sniff out contraband and moral corruption. When one day a similar-looking strange man sets her senses tingling, she discovers a relationship, a history, and a secret that will force her to choose between good and evil.

The less you know going in the better (trust us) - let's settle in for a completely unpredictable treat that will be quite unlike anything you have ever seen.
