A Ballad is set in a post-apocalyptic Bosnia and Herzegovina. “It’s a love story, in which dreams and reality become intertwined,” the director revealed to Cineuropa at the Bergamo Film Meeting. The screenplay is finished, and the film will be co-produced by the director herself together with Film House Sarajevo and Les Films de l'Après-midi.
