Synopsis by Nathan Southern

As directed by Felix Gerchikov, this drama claims an unusual source: it emerged from Grinhaos, Israel's equivalent of the 'Project Greenlight' endeavor. The movie dramatizes the experiences of several "suitcase kids," juvenile delinquent expats from the former USSR who decide to recruit and manage a soccer team that will compete in a local tournament. In the process, they must surmount obstacles including chemical addictions, the police, and various rival gangs in the area.
