The fall of the Soviet Union,
This review is from: Children Of Glory [DVD] (DVD)
A love story set to the backdrop of the Hungarian Revolution. Karsci is a successful water polo player who is part of the national team. The sport is his whole life and also how he provides for his family. Needless to say the team is closely monitored by the Soviets and their priviledges come at the cost of staying in line. Viki is a young woman whose family was killed by the Soviet police. When news breaks that the Poles are revolting against the Russians she joins the agitators in Hungary to fight for the country's independence.
The two make an unlikely pair but thrown together in a time of equal amounts of hope, despair and violence they develop a strong bond.
A very good movie with excellent acting and special effects.
