A Story about Human Trafficking.

We are in the early development stages of Alina, so we can’t share much about this project right now. Here’s a quick FAQ:

Q: What is Alina about?
A: It’s about a group of women who get trafficked from a Easter European country into Switzerland. Alina, one of the women, managed to escape their captors shortly after the Swiss border.

Q: Who are you developing this for?
As of now, this is a spec development. But hey Netflix, if you’re reading this, please get in touch :-)

Q: What format is this going to be in?
A: Definitely serial – we are aiming for a mini series of 6 episodes with a runtime of 30 minutes each.

Q: Why are you approaching this topic?
A: We feel that people in our society need to be reminded that human trafficking is a real problem that, albeit it’s happening around them every day, gets only very little political and public attention. This is something we want to change.

Alina is close to our hearts. This is a story we need to tell and we need to tell it in a way that does justice to the women affected by human trafficking: raw, real, relentless.

Q: Who are your partners in this project?
A: As of now, we don’t have any partners yet.
