The love story between Maryam and Gabriel starts by coincidence but feels like a match made in heaven. It also marks an emotional tide change in Maryam’s life in Berlin as a single mom of three daughters. Only one crucial thing stands between her, Gabriel and a “happily ever after” – prison bars. Nevertheless, the love Maryam feels empowers her not only to live in the moment, but to be true to herself when Gabriel suddenly starts to show a different side to his character.

Henrika Kull (*1984) was born and raised in the black forest. She first completed her M.A. in Social Science, as she realized that she had to come closer to the people and their stories. In 2012, she started to study film production at the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (DFFB). In 2014, she began studying film directing at the Film Universität Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF. Her works were shown on various national and international film festivals.
