The Ghosts of Zagreb is parallel journey through the streets of the Croatian capital Zagreb and the memories of five surviving members of one of the strongest anti fascist movements in occupied Europe in World War II. They describe those times as horrifying and terrible, but also the most romantic period of their life. As nostalgia for the regime that was allied with Nazi Germany increases in contemporary Croatia, the former partisans face depression and disappointment, relive fears and review decisions they once made. This documentary becomes a travelogue through a hidden world of spirits that still remains in foyers and yards, on the stairs and in the passages of the old Zagreb, which, just like the men who witnessed its history, disappear every day.
