Beautiful Sascha enjoys her luxurious life as a gangster’s moll, but she wonders more and more whether this perilous life is worth bidding farewell to her normal life.

The young and beautiful Sascha finds out her dream life of luxury and pleasure comes with a high price. She is quickly welcomed in the 'family' of her boyfriend, a drug lord. But in his holiday villa on the Turkish Rivièra, Sascha discovers that physical and psychological violence are also part of this way of life. Can she still return to normal society? In this drama, a young woman gets caught between her rich and exciting gangster boss and a soft and sweet man whose life she endangers just by looking at him.

The NFF annually spotlights several international co-productions that were realised with a substantial contribution by Dutch professionals: from actors to producers and from sound designers to composers. In most cases, the NFF screens these films for the first time in the Netherlands, after they had their world premières at prestigious festivals such as Locarno, Toronto and Sundance. In Q&As, the Dutch professionals will elaborate on their expertise. Tegnap, Zie mij doen, Holiday and Bloeistraat 11 have their Dutch premières at the NFF. Engel, Patser and Taxi Stories are the other titles in this section.
