This poignant dissection of Yugoslavia’s upheaval in the 1990s is seen through the former nation’s “Golden Generation” of players. Dejan Savicevic, Svonimir Boban, Predrag Mijatovic, and Sinisa Mihajlovic were all part of that generation--a tightknit group of football superstars that was eventual ripped apart by forces beyond their control.
Tensions climax in the qualifying rounds for the 2000 Euro Championships when wartime enemies Croatia and "Yugoslavia" (Serbia and Bosnia) face off against each other on the soccer field for the first time.
