IFC Midnight will premiere its strange new film, ‘Hatching,’ at Sundance 2022. But before it does we have the first look at the trailer debut!

In ‘Hatching,’ a 12-year-old gymnast, Tinja (Siiri Solalinna), is desperate to please her image-obsessed mother, whose popular blog ‘Lovely Everyday Life’ presents their family’s idyllic existence as manicured suburban perfection.

One day, after finding a wounded bird in the woods, Tinja brings its strange egg home, nestles it in her bed, and nurtures it until it hatches. The creature that emerges becomes her closest friend and a living nightmare, plunging Tinja beneath the impeccable veneer into a twisted reality that her mother refuses to see.

IFC Midnight presents ‘Hatching’ in theaters and VOD April 29
