Shot over 7 years, this intimate documentary follows the cross-cultural relationship between musicians Faith and Branko. In 2011, Faith travels from England to Serbia to

look for better opportunities in the UK. As they get to know each other more, their relationship is tested upon realising that music may be all they have in common.
