Bloodshed, breakup of families, powerful neighbours, and a desire to destroy Macedonia: The homeland is broken up into many parts but its heroes left with a strong sense of independence and self-identity.

Historians from Serbia, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Russia and Macedonia present facts and evidence, some of it never-before revealed. Shot on location in Bitola and the surrounding area.
