"As Far As I Can Walk", co-produced by the Luxembourgish company Les Films Fauves, is a modern adaptation of the Serbian medieval song "Banović Strahinja" about a nobleman, who, like the main actor of the film, is looking for his wife who has disappeared.
Strahinja and Ababuo, a young married African couple who end up in Serbia after leaving their homeland in search of a better life, are trying to survive as migrants in a foreign country. Strahinja is starting to build a career in a local football team, while Ababuo, a professional actress, is struggling to settle. Her dissatisfaction takes her away from Strahinja, who sets off on a perilous journey to find her.
This is a story about love, but in essence, it is the story of a man who follows his inner emotional and moral compass in spite of social conventions, in spite of everything. In the end, it is a story of forgiveness.
