    • Synopsis
    • For years fans of the three main football clubs in Istanbul (Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray) have been known for their mutual rivalry and hatred, often resulting in extremely violent clashes, with countless injuries and even deaths. In 2013, when Turkey was shaken by nationwide protests and ordinary citizens made a stand against the police, something remarkable happened: for the first time ever fans of all 3 clubs united and fought for a common cause.
