Originally titled G'mar Giviya, the Israeli Cup Final takes place in 1982, at the time of the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. Soldier Moshe Ivgi is far more concerned with the outcome of the World Cup soccer tournament than he is with the invasion. Captured by the PLO, Ivgi finds a kindred spirit in the form of his sports-nut captor, Muhamad Bacri. The subsequent prisoner-jailer relationship, which endures throughout a perilous journey through war-torn Lebanon, manages to transcend all racial and political barriers. Hal Erickson, Rovi
