Still demoralized after the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Israel was hungry for a collective uplifting event. On The Map is a fast-moving, emotional, and awe-inspiring documentary, telling the story of the 1977 Maccabee Tel-Aviv basketball team… the one that that toppled the four-time defending European Championship Soviet team, brought the first European Cup to Israel and became “The Team of the Nation.” Featuring interviews with the Jewish-American athletes who made history, combined with the pulse- pounding action of a high-stakes game, the film captures the spirit of a nation triumphant and victorious against all odds.
