Barbarians

February 17, 2008. Kosovo declares independence. The Serbian government thereupon announces mass protests, so people could express their discontent. Luka, a troubled teenager on the verge of adulthood, lives on the outskirts of Belgrade. Along with his best friend Flash, he is the leader of the local football fan club. During an unannounced visit by the social worker, Luka is faced with a family secret about his father, who was believed to have disappeared during the Kosovo conflicts. Torn between those family issues and the affection to a girl he can’t have, Luka looses his temper and breaks the leg of the local club’s top player. As the day of organized trip to the Belgrade protests comes, Luka uses the opportunity to leave town.
