SECOND CHANCE

Second Chance interweaves three stories of three women living in the same apartment complex, creating a kaleidoscopic observation of the unique experience of being a mother and the self-sacrifice involved in bringing life into this world. Each one of these women is trying to find meaning in her existence during the absurd and meaningless times on the verge of civil war in Macedonia.

This film was originally called 'Sacrifice'.
