Description

After 70 years of failed attempts to secure peace, a hilarious solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is proposed: a soccer match. The winner gets to stay and the loser leaves the country. Organizing the high-stakes match is not without it’s own complications: Where will the match be held? Who will the referees be? Can Arab-Israelis play on the Israeli soccer team? In this new comedy from Eyal Halfon (The Italians Are Coming, Circus Palestine), Moshe Ivgy (Hunting Elephants, Cup Final) and Norman Issa (Arab Labor) play opposing coaches in wonderful performances that give a bit of repose from the dilemma in the Middle East.
