In the chilling second feature from writer-director Eskil Vogt, a frequent Joachim Trier collaborator and co-writer of the TIFF ’21 selection The Worst Person In The World, a group of children test the limits of both their power and their morality. This psychological horror follows Ida (Rakel Lenora Fløttum), who has recently moved to an apartment complex with her parents and sister, Anna (Alva Brynsmo Ramstad). The younger Ida is resentful of the attention her parents pay to Anna, who has autism and is nonverbal, and Ida frequently torments her. Soon the sisters fall in with two other kids in the complex — who have supernatural abilities and their own grievances — and the capacity children have for cruelty is put on full display.
