“On The Map” tells the story of ’77 team that brought the first European Cup to Israel and became “The Team of the Nation” Still demoralized after the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Israel was hungry for a collective uplifting event. This fast-moving, emotional and awe-inspiring documentary, recounts the story of how one Tel Aviv team no one thought could win toppled the four-time defending European Champions and put Israel firmly on the map. Moments after this highly charged and historic win, team captain Tal Brody became an indelible part of a young country’s history when he famously said, “Israel is ON THE MAP, not just in sport, but in everything. Featuring interviews with the athletes who made history, the film combines the pulse pounding action of a high-stakes game with an incendiary political situation at the height of the Cold War to deliver a film that captures the spirit of a nation triumphant and victorious against all odds.
