Jana is on the cusp of adulthood; she’s started dating her first boyfriend and is getting ready to leave her war-torn hometown, to provide for her family. However, when she wakes up in a basement in Sarajevo, it is clear that life doesn’t always follow the plans we make for it.
Exploring the currency of female bodies in an underground world, Ella Dorman-Gajic’s Trade powerfully calls into question the archetype of the “perfect female victim” by examining the psychology of a morally complex protagonist.
Trade was awarded an OffComm at its critically acclaimed premiere.
