Synopsis:

Romanticized account of historic events and people who achieved something that seemed impossible by creating the Yugoslav air force at the height of Nazi Germany’s air supremacy. In 1942, during the third major Nazi offensive against Yugoslav guerrillas, partisan pilots fought an uneven air battle against the Germans.  They achieved some surprise victories against German pilots who believed they were invincible in the air, thus contributing to the overall victory of the Yugoslav resistance movement.
