Vasermil

Directed by: Mushon Salmona
90 Minutes, 2007, Drama

Vasermil tells the story of a group of adolescents who live in the same tough neighborhood of Beer-Sheba, growing up in an unforgiving environment, pinning their hopes on football as a way out. Shlomi lives with his widowed mother and works as a pizza boy; Adiel, who is of Ethiopian descent, has to look after his young brother and sick mother; and Dima is a new immigrant from Russia, whose family barely makes ends meet. United by a coach in their shared passion for football, the three must learn to work together, accept each others’ difference, and overcome old prejudices—to compete for the game and for a brighter future.
