Sabina K. is inspired by a true story set in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The "Sabina" of the title plans to marry Sasa (with whom she served during the Bosnian War), but there is a problem. Sabina is Muslim and Sasa a Catholic, and their respective families disapprove of the marriage. Their only ally is an older woman, Ankica, whose son - killed in the war - had been their close friend. "Aunt" Ankica thinks of Sabina and Sasa as her own children and invites them to her home on the island of Korcula to get married. Springtime comes and Sabina travels to Korcula where she is reunited with Ankica and where the two women wait for Sasa to join them from Zagreb. The days pass... Sasa never arrives... and with a heavy and troubled heart, Sabina returns to Sarajevo. She discovers that Sasa has taken all his things from her apartment and moved out. There is no note; no explanation. Sabina goes to Sasa's mother for answers, but the deeply embittered woman treats her harshly and calls the police. ...
A mesmerizing movie one this drew me into the life of this woman as if I were right there in her shoes experiencing the excitement and the disappointment in her life .. walking through a time of complete hopelessness... the film had an ending I never expected but was very moved in my heart This is a very different movie than my normal viewing but I am so very grateful I have it a shot, I highly recommend this movie to anyone who lives life out of an authentic heart who has known brokenness and experienced grace and beauty from from this experience .. anyone who wants to experience a movie that is about the human experience in the raw it's real and it's beautiful
