Film Synopsis:

After the end of the war in Bosnia, the well-regarded Travnik Gymnasium was divided into two parts, marking a physical and abstract barrier between its two sides. One part is for Croatians, and the other for mixed Bosnian students. Throughout the year, there is little contact between the two sides, despite their shared physical space. The principal of the Croatian side has the idea to organize a football tournament, thus enabling students to meet, interact, and, possibly, to truly get to know one another. Some find this unity natural and welcome, while others are not so sure. Telling the story of this conflict, Two Schools focuses on two football team captains at the center of the drama.
