Tin & Tina: What’s it about?

Here’s the official synopsis: “After a traumatic miscarriage, a young couple adopts two peculiar twins from a convent whose obsession with religion soon disturbs the family.”

If you want to know a bit more about the movie, the story begins with Lola (Milena Smit) and Adolfo (Jamie Lorente) discovering that they can’t have children soon after their wedding day.

They head back to their home town – as well as the house where Adolfo grew up – and decide to adopt from a local convent that provides shelter and education to abandoned children. They meet Tin and Tina, who were left at the convent gates years previous, and look like refugees from the Village of the Damned.

Adolfo has misgivings, thinking the children too old and strange. But Lola believes they are as deserving of love as any other kid, so they take the twins in.

But then things get weird – Tin and Tina’s mischievous games turn dark and disturbing, while the twins’ obsession with sin, The Bible, and the word of God, threaten to tear the family apart.
