Set during the brutal ethnic wars of the 1990s, “Go West” follows the story of two young lovers, Kenan, a Muslim cellist, and Milan, a Serbian student, as they try to flee the relentless fighting and daily discrimination around them. As Serb aggression persists in Sarajevo, Kenan’s faith makes him a prime target. To avoid questioning that would lead to his death, he dresses as a woman and takes on the role of Milan’s wife. When the two arrive at Milan’s hometown, hoping to find refuge, Kenan is introduced as Milan’s bride. Though the townspeople appear initially convinced, Kenan and Milan must keep up the charade long enough to plot an escape to Milan's dreamland of Holland. A first for Bosnian cinema, Ahmed Imamovic’s “Go West” confronts an issue that has long been taboo in his society: homosexuality.
