Three goals down and seemingly set for further embarrassment, Liverpool Football Club were being humiliated on the game's biggest stage.
The club's first European Cup final in 20 years looked destined to be ending in heartache as AC Milan were allowed to run away with a 3-0 advantage.
But then somehow, deep in the bowels of the Ataturk Stadium, Liverpool were inspired into fighting back to three-all and then eventually winning a dramatic penalty shoot-out.
But now, courtesy of the imagination of acclaimed Liverpool writer Dave Kirby at least, the truth can be told. And the truth is hilarious.
Naturally, as we've come to expect from the Brick Up The Mersey Tunnels, Lost Soul and Council Depot Blues scribe his latest venture is a rollercoaster ride of sharp Scouse wit.
Fifteen Minutes That Shook The World transforms Kirby's acclaimed theatre writing style effortlessly on to the big screen as we are taken back in time to the night Liverpool brought Old Big Ears home for good.
