The Children of USSR

Narrative | 2007 | 96 min.
Directed by: Felix Gerchikov

Slava and his friends, a group of young Russian immigrants, are out of place, frustrated and alone in the harsh setting of a small desert town in Southern Israel. Victor, an older immigrant who used to be a soccer coach, suggests they set up a soccer team to compete in the local tournament. The soccer field becomes their home away from home, the place where they can be themselves, and where they can prove their worth: to themselves, to each other, and most importantly – to the new world in which they find themselves.
