On the edge of adulthood, Alma travels to her native Bosnia to visit the father she’s never met. But from the start, nothing goes as planned. Her cousin Emir gives her a frosty reception while an undeniable sexual chemistry leads Alma into a passionate relationship with Emir’s best friend, the troublemaker Denis. As the obstacles mount, Alma stays fearlessly determined to follow her plan and find her father. She just has to figure herself out first.
High on the reckless energy of youth and the rush of adult discovery, the rebellious trio set off on the adventure together, embarking on an increasingly unpredictable road trip through the scorching Bosnian heartland. During the journey, Alma will learn to accept and understand herself, embracing all the challenges that come her way.
Sendijarević's promising debut is an offbeat coming of age story, fuelled with exquisite cinematography and compelling performances of three headstrong protagonists. A playful and alluring road movie on identity and self-discovery, Take Me Somewhere Nice will not leave anyone indifferent.
