Irina is a part-time waitress in a small Bulgarian town. On the very same day when she is fired, her husband gets into a serious accident. Irina’s family is trapped in poverty. To make ends meet, she becomes a surrogate mother. Fights, despair and the seed of life growing in her belly bring on another wave to this rough and wrecked life. Slowly, Irina discovers what it means to love and to forgive.

„Carrying a child and giving birth changes the life of every woman. Mine too. Irina is a very personal and very feminine (but not feminist) story about rediscovering the world bringing new life in it.

Irina is a film about forgiveness. A story that raises moral and ethical questions, but also leads us to a place where their answers become irrelevant. To a place where forgiving is the only way to overcome the despair, pain and anger. The only way to survive.“

Nadejda Koseva
