Synopsis:

BARBARIANS is a teenage drama, a portrait of a young generation growing up without opportunity and in a society of lost values.

Luka is a young man on the verge of adulthood who leads a group of local second league football supporters, with his best friend Flash. Troubled by his parole, family problems and a secret relationship with a girlfriend of one of the football players, Luka desperately tries to fit in.
