How did a football match become a turning point in history? Twenty-five years after the Holocaust, despite emotional and political barriers and terrorist threats, the Israeli national team and Germanys Borussia Munchegladbach met in a match that marked the beginning of the normalization of relations between Israel and Germany. Through interviews with former German and Israeli footballers, historians and diplomats, and drawing on rare archival material, the documentary explores the power of personal friendship, but also of football, a sport that can pave the way between opposing sides.
