Sinopsis

Na početku migranstske krize, Strahinja i njegova žena Ababu, oboje stari 28 godina, napustili su Ganu. Uspjeli su da stignu do Njemačke, ali su ih odande deportovali nazad u Beograd. Srbija možda nije Nemačka, ali Strahinja daje sve od sebe da započne novi život. Vrijedno radi da dobije azil, trenira fudbal za lokalni klub i volontira za Crveni krst. Proces je, međutim, dugotrajan, i Ababu, strastvenu ženu koja želi da postane glumica u Londonu, njihov život ne ispunjava. Jedne noći stiže nova grupa Sirijaca, na putu za Zapadnu Evropu. Jedan od njih je Ali, harizmatični ljevičarski aktivista.  Ababu mu se isprva ruga, ali već slijedećeg dana, bez objašnjenja, odlazi s njim iz Srbije. Strahinja kreće balkanskom migrantskom rutom iz potpuno različitih razloga od svih ostalih: iz ljubavi.

Strahinya and his wife, Ababuo, both 28, left Ghana at the beginning of the migrant crisis. They managed to reach Germany but were deported back to Belgrade. Serbia may not be Germany, but Strahinya does his best to start a new life. He works hard to secure asylum, trying out as a football player for a local club and working as a volunteer for the Red Cross. The process, however, is lengthy and Ababuo, a passionate woman aspiring to become an actress in London, feels unfulfilled in their life. One night, a new group of Syrian refugees arrive, on their way to Western Europe. One of them is Ali, a charismatic left-wing activist. Ababuo initially mocks him, but, the very next day, leaves Serbia with him, providing no explanation. Strahinya sets off along the Balkan migrant route for completely different reasons than anyone else: for love.
