ABOUT TV SERIAL
The series tells a story about Serbia and its capital, Belgrade, during the 1930s; how it established itself as a metropolis through external social influence and the resistance against impending fascism. Furthermore, this is a tale about the vision of people who embraced a young sport, football, and contributed toward it becoming the most relentless global phenomenon of the present.
Creating a TV series was imperative for the ‘Montevideo, Taste of a Dream’ project. The extended TV format was found to be the most suitable solution for fully capturing the spirit of the times, and bringing the charm of an era, its historical figures and their creation of a legend to a wide audience.
The main topic of the TV serial is our national team success at the First World Football Championship held in Montevideo, Uruguay (1930). The story is about young football players who achieved that success with their enthusiasm and talent, spread the fame of their country throughout the world and became true stars and real legends of those times.
