17 February 2008. Kosovo declares independence and the Serbian government announces mass protests so that people can express their dissatisfaction. Luka, a troubled teenager on the verge of adulthood, lives in Mladenovac, a ruined ex-industrial town on the brinks of Belgrade where, with his best friend Flash, he is a leader of the local football fan club. During an unannounced visit by the social worker, Luka is confronted with a family secret that his father, who was believed to have disappeared in Kosovo conflicts, is in fact alive and asking for him. Torn between family issues, the pressure of his ongoing parole and affection for a girl he can’t have, Luka loses his temper and breaks the leg of the local club’s top player. He is now being pursued by people who seek revenge because of their ruined investment and even friends from his own circle start to move away. The day of an organised trip to protests in Belgrade arrives and Luka uses this opportunity to leave town. As hooligans demonstrate their rage in Belgrade streets, Luka gathers his strength to finally meet his father who abandoned him years beforehand.
