In 1941, Ustashas establish the Independent State of Croatia and terrorize Serbs, Jews, Gypsies and all Croatians who reject the new government’s policies. At the stadium in Maksimir, Ustashas decide to separate high school kids of Jewish and Serbian nationality from Croatians. However, illegal communists plan to sabotage this action by setting the stadium on fire. Among the young communists is a boy whose girlfriend is Serbian and whose best friend is an ardent Ustasha… Awards: Pula 77' - Bog Silver Arena, Golden Arena for the best screnplay;
