In Sarajevo, a teenager seeking validation claims that she had sex for the first time during a game of “truth or dare” among middle schoolers. Trapped in her own lie, she invents a pregnancy and becomes the center of a controversy that spirals out of control.
Her other short film Salamat, made in Germany within the initiative Lebanon Factory, premiered at the Directors’ Fortnight in 2017. Excursion is her first feature film and gained the support of Eurimages, Aide au Développement at Cinemed 2019, Hubert Bals Script and Project Development Fund, and Sorfond in 2021.
