Leni (Hana Selimovic) and Lazar (Mladen Sovilj), the two main characters of The Disobedients, are former childhood sweethearts who share a long and touching history. Years pass. In their early twenties, the two reunite at the funeral of Lazar's father, and reestablish an intimate rapport right off the bat. In the days that follow, Leni discovers that she's expectant, yet she's also unsure about the identity of the dad. On a lark, she and Lazar hit the road together, bicycling through the Serbian countryside and making several stops along the way. The old friends share a childlike love of anarchy and delight in such activities as crashing strangers' weddings and raising hell, though the specter of impending responsibility looms - first via the pregnancy, and then via the presence of a young orphan boy who crosses paths with the travelers and joins them. Soon, the three form a little itinerant family, though the future appears murky; it remains unclear if Leni and Lazar each have the inner resources necessary to cross the threshold into adulthood and abandon the spirit of youthful bliss forever.
