Border is a film that worries and fascinates at the same time, a love story between not so human beings that push us to question the meaning of humanity. Is it nature or culture that defines who we are? In the film this eternal interrogative developes in a storyline between fantasy and crime, mixing social chronicle and fantastic atmosphere.
Main character is Tina, a woman troll who works as a custom agent equipped with an inffalible nose of human ugliness. Traveler after traveler, Tine feels fear, shame, guilt. She doesn't miss anything, until she meets Vore, who also is a difform being in a world full of ferocious Sapiens. Tina noses Vore's guilt, but she doesn't understand its origin.
With a criminal investigation going on in the background, the woman - played by a powerful Eva Melander - indulges in a wild relationship that soon reveals her true nature, forcing her to choose between integration or exclusion.
