When the migrant crisis started, STRAHINJA (28) and his wife ABABUO (28) left Ghana seeking for better life. Now they are stuck in a Belgrade Refugee Camp. A football player on trial for a local club, a volunteer for the Red Cross, Strahinja works hard to get the asylum. But the process is long and Ababuo feels unfulfilled with her current life. One night a new group of Syrian refugees arrives. Among them ALI (39), a charismatic left-wing activist. Ababuo mocks him. But the next day, Ababuo is gone. She left with Ali. Without any explanation. Strahinja starts the Balkan migrant route with completely different reasons then anyone else. For love. The film is a contemporary adaptation of the medieval Serbian epic poem Banovic Strahinja.
