In 1976, Janez Škrubej and a group of electrical engineers, his college friends, established Iskra Delta, a company that proved an immediate success, especially in Eastern markets. With its explosive growth, it was not long before CIA took an interest, keen to prevent its technology from ending up in the enemy’s hands. For KGB, however, Iskra Delta was the last chance to make up for the technological gap. Domestically, Iskra Delta fell from grace with the authorities. To top it all, Yugoslavia began to disintegrate.

Director’ s statement:
The 1980s were a time when the old had not yet died and the new had not yet emerged, and this was when one of the most successful economic enterprises was born. The enthusiasm that drove those post-hippie gigs inspired me to turn this extraordinary story into a film.
