Where the Road Leads

Main competition program 2023 I 82 min I Serbia

A stranger arrives in an isolated, forgotten village near which a highway will soon be built. Locals, full of mistrust and fear of the change that the road brings, suspect that even the stranger has something to do with it and that he is hiding his true intentions. A few misunderstandings and lies are enough for the townspeople’s intolerance towards the stranger to grow into an open conflict, and Jana, a girl from the village who fell in love with the stranger, realizes that she is the only one who can save him from the danger that has loomed over him.
