Lazar and Leni were best friends growing up in Serbia. Years later, Lazar is living abroad, while Leni has chosen to stay home. Then Lazar returns, right as Leni’s life is at a crossroads, and they embark on a cycling trip together. But this turns out to be more complicated than their youthful bond.
This road movie set in the frivolous atmosphere of summer portrays an intense friendship that, when transitioning from youth to adulthood, might slip on the edge of romance. With sun-drenched imagery, cycling adventures, and exuberant behaviors, The Disobedient is a frolicking delight.
