Strahinja and his wife Ababuo left Ghana with a dream of a better life in Europe. Instead of reaching the western part of the continent, they were deported back to Serbia. Strahinja has started to build himself a career, while Ababuo is unable to fulfil her ambitions and she feels increasingly frustrated. When she disappears one day, Strahinja sets out to find her… A crystal clear, humanistic story about the need to find one’s place in the world. It’s also a tale of love, the most profound testimony of which might also be the most painful.


Synopsis

Strahinja and his wife Ababuo left Ghana with visions of a better life in Europe. Instead of reaching their dream destination of Germany, they were deported back to Serbia. Strahinja has begun to build a career for himself at the local football club, while Ababuo, a professional actress, is unable to fulfil her ambitions and she feels increasingly frustrated. When Ababuo disappears one day, Strahinja sets out to find her… The story of two African migrants was inspired by the medieval epic poem Strahinja Banović, about a Serbian nobleman searching for his kidnapped wife. In his masterfully directed picture Stefan Arsenijević delivers a crystal clear, humanistic account of the need to find one’s place in the world; this is also a tale of love, the most profound testimony of which might also be the most painful.
