Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne direct this realist psychological drama set in Liege, Belgium. Arta Dobroshi stars as the protagonist of the title, a young Albanian woman stuck in a marriage of convenience with junkie Belgian Claudy (Jeremie Renier). It turns out that this is a strategic marriage set up by a Russian gangster, and that the eventual plan is for Claudy to be murdered and Lorna to then re-marry the gangster so that he could gain the Belgian citizenship he needs. Meanwhile, Lorna entertains modest dreams of opening a snack bar with her boyfriend Sokol (Alban Ukaj).
