A couple receives anything but the peace they were hoping for as they settle in at a remote cabin in this Mongolian psychological horror-thriller.

Erkhmee and Selenge, a married couple going through a rough patch, take to a mountain cabin in the Mongolian wilderness. Selenge is in poor health, and Erkhmee hopes to turn the cabin into a safe and healing space for his wife. That only makes it more shocking for their overly curious neighbour to discover the bizarre and violent tendencies of the new man next door. What exactly is happening?

With a potent unease hovering over the story like a thick fog, Aberrance is a stylistically bold puzzle of a feature debut, brought to life by one of Mongolia’s finest cinematographers. The film was awarded the Oldenburg Film Festival’s «Audacity Award», which is reserved for particularly innovative films.

«Propelled by Batsukh’s innovative and aggressive camera work along with a trio of very committed lead performances, Aberrance is definitely the work of a talented first-timer, and signals the arrival of a filmmaker we should all keep an eye on.»
– J. Hurtado, ScreenAnarchy –
