Synopsis:
Preliminary estimates indicate that the first wave of Jews who settled in Albania were survivors of a shipwreck containing Jewish slaves on their way to Rome as early as 70 CE. Based on original documents and eyewitnesses, HUG OF DESTINY is an illuminating documentary about the history of Jewish people in Albania and Kosovo, including the largely unknown story of Jewish lives saved in Albania and Kosovo during the Holocaust. Special appearances are made by Edi Rama (Albanias Prime Minister), Kadri Veseli (President of Kosovos Parliament), and Benjamin Netanyahu (Israels Prime Minister).

Director Bio:
Jakov Sedlar is a Croatian film director and producer. Sedlar was born in Split, Croatia, Yugoslavia in 1952.
