Mensud fought in the Bosnian war, defending his hometown Mostar and the

Old Bridge. Now that peace has returned and the Old Bridge has been

rebuilt, Mensud is fighting once again, this time against the new

nationalist mentality.

Torn apart and enraged by ethnical conflict, Mostar is more like two

“ghettos” divided by a big boulevard, than the joyful Montmartre of the

Balkans that it  was before the war. From the pitch of the Velez

football school, the legendary team of Mostar, Mensud teaches an army

of kids the value of friendship and unity. His son, Dzenan,

one of his players, cannot stand this struggle any longer.

He dreams of playing for a major European team

and living in a safe environment.
