Tina has an extraordinary sense of smell. Her appearance is also unusual. She is a customs officer with a perfect record for identifying smugglers, sniffing out the guilt in certain people. When she encounters a mysterious man who resembles her, Tina’s special skills are compromised. She develops a strange obsession towards him, and they engage in a relationship through which astounding truths about herself, and humanity at large, come to light. Winner of the Un Certain Regard at Cannes, Border is one of the most original and unique films of recent years. Iranian-Swedish director Ali Abbassi weaves folklore, tragic romance, and existential questions into a highly affective cinematic tale.
