Team Gaza

During one full season we follow five players and one female reporter in the Palestinian Gaza Strip. All of them try to give meaning to their lives in the hermetically sealed land strip where war and distress pose a daily threat. One turns to God, another turns to weapons, a third tries to build a civil life. On the football pitch their stories converge, there they can forget about everything for a short while.
