In this acclaimed, award-winning film set amidst the perilous world of prostitution, a young student who’s unable to make ends meet joins the world’s oldest profession, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead.


23-year-old student Aleksandra (Nina Ivanišin) embraces the excitement and anonymity of big city living when she becomes a call girl, planning to take advantage of everything the city has to offer. But her precarious double life is shattered when one of her clients dies. Pursued by both criminals and the police, Aleksandra must confront her deepest fears with only her hometown to turn to.


Boasting an unforgettable central performance from newcomer Nina Ivanišin, A CALL GIRL (Slovenka) is a riveting look at one woman’s dual existence that combines a powerful emotional honesty with a forceful contemporary relevance.
