Margarita, a Bulgarian intern, leaves England and her boyfriend Marco Mantanich, a British reporter, to join her brother and his friends, from an array of Balkan descendents, for a windsurfing trip on a Turkish island. Marco follows Margarita to retrieve his stolen wind-surfing board and once there the group begins fighting over nationalistic issues. Marco decides to write a controversial article on Balkan conflicts, which sparks intercontinental turmoil, therefore turning the surfers against each other. When tragedy strikes, the group must once again find their commonalities and reunite in order to survive.
