The year of splitting from Yugoslavia brought many changes. The establishment of the Slovenian Olympic Committee in February 1992 enabled Slovenian athletes to compete under the Slovenian flag for the first time at the Winter Olympic Games in Albertville, France. The ambassadors of the new state soon gained international recognition with a string of successes.
The documentary presents a collage of the highlights of the history of Slovenian Olympism, which come to life with the stories of the main actors. Their memories lead us from the recognition of membership in the International Olympic Committee to the first medals, through the long-awaited gold and finally to the recent successes that occurred in the year marking the 30th anniversary of the OCS.
