Trailer

The story of “Honeymoons” is set in contemporary Albania and Serbia. We follow the fortunes of two young couples who decide to leave their respective home countries in search of a better life in Western Europe. When the Albanian couple, after all sorts of incidents, arrives in the Italian southern port, their problems start. The same fate awaits the Serbian couple when they enter European Union by train at the Hungarian border. Despite the fact that they have nothing to do with the incident that occurred in Kosovo in which two Italian UN soldiers lost their lives, they are arrested at the border and suspected due to unfortunate coincidences.
