About The Film
Almost half the players on the Israeli national soccer team are Muslim, including the captain. While many fans are supportive of the team's diversity and are hopeful that its new roster will lead to unprecedented victory, others are unhappy that it is no longer predominantly Jewish and bristle at the discord and controversies often stoked by prejudice and the media. The loyalty of these players is questioned by all sides even as they try to guide their team through their biggest international tournament. They speak openly about the discrimination and difficulties they've encountered along the way, as well as their close, positive, and cooperative friendships with Jewish teammates. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy tremendous game footage and find this an invigorating portrait of the Israeli national team's common goals: inclusion and a better standing in the league.
