The time is 1956, the coldest year of the Cold War and Hungary is politically dominated by the Soviet Empire. Yet, Hungary is also a superpower - the Hungarian national water polo team remains undefeated...invincible. While Communist oppression hangs like a dark cloud over the Hungarians' everyday life, the team's star athletes are shining heroes to the nation, treated like modern day rock stars with money jingling in their pockets and a beautiful girl on each arm. This epic match in Melbourne was a high moment of sports drama in 1956 and inspiration to freedom loving people everywhere.

This year is the 60th Anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956.
