World Cinema: A Belgian drama telling the story of an Albanian woman in Belgium on the periphery of the seedy criminal underworld of people trafficking and bogus marriages for the right to stay.

Lorna is stuck in a bogus marriage with a junkie that is coming to its natural end. The only problem is her handlers would rather he OD’ed than they get a divorce, leaving the break as clean as possible.

Lorna (Arta Dobroshi), a young Albanian woman living in Belgium, has hopes of opening a cafe with her boyfriend, an itinerant worker who visits when he can. She marries Claudy, a local junkie, to secure legal residency and collaborates with Fabio (Fabrizio Rongione), a low-life cab driver who arranges a hefty payoff for her to marry a Russian mobster. Lorna wants to divorce Claudy; but Fabio wants him to overdose. She knows nothing of the threatening underworld in which she will be enmeshed.
