2008 Kia Spectra Question: I am unable to open the driver's door from the inside. How easy is this to fix?

It feels like there is no "connection" between the handle and the door mechanism. The door opens without issue using the outside handle.

What would the approximate cost be if I took it to a shop?

    Thanks, much appreciated. I am not that mechanically minded, so will probably have my local shop do it. Is it an expensive job? What would be the estimated hours?

    Thanks again :-)
