Hinterland looks at poverty and addiction through a speculative and supernatural lens. A pair of twins bear the burden of their mother’s mental illness by entering teenhood as almost fulltime caregivers. When it seems as though things are in the upswing for the two, entering an adulthood of love and independence and possibilities, their mother predicts a storm, despite medication to keep premonitions at bay. The two, house-locked now with what seems like their scheming mother, fight for their lives in the storm as the temperature drops and the snow rises and the power goes out.
