Lana's Rain 2005
Drama | English • Serbo-Croatian
Director: Michael S. Ojeda
Lana's only chance to escape the war-torn Balkans is her long-lost brother, Darko, a low level gangster with enemies intent on revenge. The two escape to America with hopes of a better life, but Lana's illusions are shattered as she is forced to become a prostitute on the mean streets of Chicago. As Lana gets pulled deeper into her brother's criminal world, a steely determination grows and she must risk her own life to overcome Darko and his pursuers if she hopes to realize her American dream.
The Chicago Tribune
"The lower depth portrait of Chicago and the striking debut performance by actress Oksana Orlenko grant Lana's Rain a stinging authenticty ."
ROGER EBERT - 2 THUMBS UP
"A compelling, hard edged story. A revenge twist so ingenious I will not even hint of it."
