'Story' is a reflection about modern man in an age of omnipresent technology. Looking through stories - a popular function in many social media platforms - we see people who are lonely, lost or already indifferent about reality surrounding them. Action takes place during one day and it's told by short, often (auto)ironic scenes, where virtual world sinks to reality.

“Story” had its premiere at the 69th Berlinale, won awards in Jordan, France, Greece and Poland and is currently screening at dozens of festivals around the world. In 2019/2020 she participates in Animation Sans Frontiéres (ASF), the European Animation Development Lab. 69th Berlinale IFF, Germany 2019 Pictoplasma Festival 2019, Germany Annecy International Animation Film Festival 2019, France, 25th International Short Film Festival in Drama, Greece - Best Animation Award, 10th Karama Human Rights Film Festival, Jordan - Karama Feather Award.
