    • Synopsis

    • Mara gives birth to the illegitimate boy Ivan, whose father Rok is a businessman she loves obsessively. When Rok is accused of white-collar crime, his friends abandon him. Mara feels the consequences as well. She gets beaten up by Rok’s cronies and ends up in a safe house. Rok takes her and Ivan away, and she is convinced her dreams have come true. However, Rok uses them only to get to the money he keeps in a safe. On the run from the men chasing them, he forces Mara to take the worst sacrifice imaginable ‒ leave her baby.
