A documentary that follows different moments in the lives of three hooligan football fans, who will do anything to support their team in the mining town of Pernik, located far from the center - on the outskirts of Bulgaria, at the outskirts of Europe. A violent and racist fan, the leader of the group of rough diehard fans, and the only woman in the group – all experience exciting and hair-raising moments together on the bleachers. The film documents their candid confessions, and the decline of a city that was one of the most prosperous industrial centers in Bulgaria in those distant days of the twentieth century.

Economic forces, social struggles, and ideological currents – all sweep the lives of the film's protagonists in the stormy bleachers.
