As former the Yugoslavia was falling apart, the economic and social stability of Serbia was collapsing as well. Social extremes were apparent everywhere, especially among the youth. War, inflation, physical isolation and sanctions all contributed to Serbia becoming a kind of closed society. This was most visible in Serbia's capital, Belgrade, which experienced a sharp decline in all aspects of life. In this isolated environment, the young began creating their own worlds. Here, we look at Belgrade in the second half of the 1990s from the perspective of three disparate youths on the cusp of adulthood and during the 48 hour period in which their lives are changed completely.
