LOVE IN THE OFFSIDE is the exciting Croatian Telenovela. It is a family story placed in the recognizable urban area of Zagreb. The story centers around two generations of three families connected by football. The show follows the lives of four young men from the suburbs, which grew up playing football. Two of them became professional football players, one became a successful coach and one became a manager. At the peak of his career, one of the youths was tragically killed, while the other three went their separate ways. The drama begins 25 years later, when they all returned to Zagreb. In addition to having football and their past in common, the characters find themselves in complex emotional relations. At the same time, the show follows the lives of their children, which were unavoidably affected by football and burdened with their parents' past. The center of the story is the love of two young people, a football player Marko Marusic and painter Nina Radic. Due to different surroundings and what seem to be incompatible life styles, their love story is very turbulent.
