AS FAR AS I CAN WALK


SYNOPSIS
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 unfullled 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 along the Balkan migrant route for completely different reasons than anyone else: for love.
A reimagining of the medieval Serbian epic poem Banovich Strahinya in which contemporary African migrants take the place of Serbian national heroes. Urgent and timeless at the same time, this
adaptation raises questions about identity, tradition, race and love.
