Losing Us is in production and we hope to finish filming in September 2021. 

All the filming will take place in Norfolk, UK.

17-year-old Gezim and 12-year-old Elira live in a happy, loving Albanian family. Violence in their community is rising and the killing of their dad forces their mother Luljeta and the siblings to flee for their lives. They leave their country and after a treacherous long journey, they finally end up on UK shores. Here they have to find ways to survive with the help of the dangerous human trafficking gang member who gives them fake passports.

Luljeta, who is a former teacher, takes a job as a cleaner but what she earns is not enough to feed her children and pay back the gang members. Luljeta mysteriously disappears, leaving her children Gezim and Elira to fend for themselves without any knowledge of what happened to their mother. Gezim fears the worst and tries to protect his sister from that knowledge while attempting to figure out how to survive.
