Storyline

Drazen Petrovic and Vlade Divac were two friends who grew up together sharing the common bond of basketball. Together, they lifted the Yugoslavian National team to unimaginable heights. After conquering Europe, they both went to America where they became the first two foreign players to attain NBA stardom. But with the fall of the Soviet Union on Christmas Day 1991, Yugoslavia split up. A war broke out between Petrovic's Croatia and Divac's Serbia. Long buried ethnic tensions surfaced. And these two men, once brothers, were now on opposite sides of a deadly civil war.

Journey back from dreams
17 February 2016 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I saw this at a friend's house last week, prompted by memories of these people. It's a touching story about a common dream, the journey of unexpected adventure that takes you from a small Yugoslav city to the place of dreams, and how that dream was marred and grew sour when their country was torn apart, another common dream that was broken up.

If journeys are not so much about where you finally end up but the transition from one life to the next, if looking back at the things that made the heart grow fond we find not attaining some goal as much as measuring yourself up against it and riding towards it, inhabiting all this sense of moving along, this is purely about a journey.

It captured me by way of a sense I'm deeply attuned to; that the world is full of possible lives to explore, directly or vicariously through a camera, that there is no telling how these lives will pan out and the thrill all in setting out to see.
