How can you plan for next year, next month, or even tomorrow when you’re a victim of war? You can’t. You live only in the “now”. You live moment-to-moment. Your known destiny is destroyed, and piece-by-piece you must rebuild and discover a new one. Finding Fate follows the lives of three powerful mothers in Poland, 2022 and their shared quest to be strong for their families and help others struggling under the shadow of the recent war in Ukraine.

Nastia, a Ukrainian refugee, was forced to flee her home with her five-year-old daughter after bombs dropped from the sky. Now in Poland, she battles to find a new “normal” as she vows to keep her child safe.

Anna, a Polish mother, finds herself haunted by Poland’s conflicted past. She feels compelled to help those escaping Ukraine, and she shelters a mother with nowhere to go.

And finally, Marzena, a Jewish, Polish, single mother, who’s entire family was murdered by the Nazis is motivated to help because of her family’s past. She believes “whoever saves one life, saves the whole world.”

The film centers on the lives and experiences of these three mothers – and the ferocity with which they fight to protect their children and families. In doing so, the viewer gets a rare glimpse of how powerful the maternal spirit is during a time of war. Through valuing each other's histories and current realities, Finding Fate reveals that when we find common ground, we can unite to help build a shared future.
