LET ME HAVE MY SON - DVD
Ben Whitmore Sr. is awakened early one morning to learn that his son, Benny, after years of treatment for schizophrenia, is ready for discharge from Middlemouth Security Hospital. Giddy with excitement, Ben travels to Middlemouth to bring Benny home. Instead, he discovers that Benny has gone missing, triggering an increasingly desperate search for answers within the labyrinthine hospital complex.
Keeping at times just one step ahead of Middlemouth orderlies, Ben meets a colorful assortment of patients along the way, many of them Benny’s friends. He takes time to share with them the fuller story of Benny’s struggles and the patients warm to Ben as one of their own. Ultimately, however, when it comes to finding Benny and bringing him home, Ben comes to the sobering realization that he cannot complete the task.
That is no reason, however, to give up hope… as Ben soon discovers.

SABINA K - DVD
Sabina K., inspired by a true story, takes place in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The “Sabina” of the title is a divorced mother of two small children who falls in love with Saša, an old friend from the Bosnian war. The two plan to marry, but things go terribly wrong when Saša mysteriously disappears.
A few weeks later, Sabina passes out on the job. She goes to the doctor and learns that she is pregnant. Her parents and friends counsel her to have an abortion and put the past behind her, but she refuses. As her pregnancy advances and winter approaches, Sabina loses her job and when her ex-husband tries to shake her down for money by threatening to take the children away permanently, she comes to a breaking point. Love has failed her, and she decides to take her life. She checks into a room at a hostel and begins swallowing pills, slipping into unconsciousness.
What happens next is subject to opinion… But one thing becomes clear. Sabina will never be the same.
