Ivana the Terrible is a nonconventional story about people and places, about belonging and longing, told with humour and tenderness.
The Serbian actress Ivana works and lives in Romania, but after several health issues, she decides to spend her summer on the other side of the Danube, in Kladovo, her native little town, surrounded by her family.
The mayor invites her to be the image of the most important local event – the music festival Friendship Bridge – and though she is not very convinced, Ivana accepts it. After the arrival of her eccentric friends from Bucharest and as the gossip about her having a younger lover spreads around her town, Ivana arrives on the verge of a nervous breakdown.The family and friends are invited to bring on the screen their own emotions and to play themselves in a film story about a woman who can`t find her place on neither side of the Danube.
