Still demoralized after the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Israel was hungry for a collective uplifting event. This is the story of how one Tel Aviv basketball team no one thought could win toppled the four-time defending European champions and put Israel firmly on the map. Featuring interviews with the American athletes who helped make this piece of history, it combines the pulse pounding action of a high-stakes game with an incendiary political situation at the height of the Cold War. Honoring the spirit and tenacity of the team members, this movie mesmerizes fans of the game and anyone who loves a David versus Goliath story.
Special guest: Tal Brody, captain of the 1977 Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team, Maccabi Tel Aviv’s 1977 European Championship
