This documentary explores how in post-Yugoslav states civic education has been overshadowed by the ethnocentric structures of the education systems, policies and curricula, paradoxically on the pretext of promoting multicultural education.’ These curricula are largely delivered by teachers who had been influenced by the past values of ‘brotherhood and unity’. The film shows how young citizens’ identities are partly shaped by the education structures, but also by the way teachers position themselves in relation to these structures - both as agents of change and of continuity.
