You can lose everything before finding what matters most

Directed by Cristobal Krusen (Final Solution)

Sabina, a divorced mother of two small children, falls in love with Sasa, an old friend from the Bosnian war. The two plan to marry, but Sasa mysteriously disappears.

A few weeks later, Sabina discovers that she is pregnant, loses her job, and is threatened by her ex-husband. At her breaking point, she checks into a hotel and begins swallowing pills, slipping into unconsciousness.

What happens next is subject to opinion, but one thing is clear—Sabina will never be the same.

Interfaith relations (Muslim/Christian), abortion, divorce, persecution, depression, suicide, family dynamics and abandonment are themes embedded into this complicated multi-dimensional international drama.

With a highly emotional arc that moves from love and hope to puzzlement and despair to near death and then back to hope and love again, Sabina K is inspired by a true story.
