Exploring the horrific side of the maternal instinct, Hatching begins when twelve-year-old gymnast Tinja, brings in a strange egg from the woods into her bedroom, nestling and nurturing it until it hatches. The creature that emerges becomes her closest friend and a living nightmare for Tinja’s image-obsessed mother, whose popular blog presents their family’s idyllic existence as manicured suburban perfection. Preceded by Hanna Bergholm’s short horror film Puppet Master (2018, 15 min.)
