Hope

Three soccer players, their coach, and his son and assistant coach, relay the experiences of a youth soccer team throughout an entire season. Yaakov, the coach, sees himself as an educator and the fatherly attention and professionalism he brings to his job earn him genuine esteem. His 15-year-old son, Guy, wanted to play but failed in the try-outs. Since then, he’s been helping his father with a team of ten-year-olds. Elad, the team captain, has difficulty concentrating at school; Idan is an intelligent boy, but fails to win the coach’s support; Ido from the Shikun Lamed neighborhood hopes that Yaakov will notice him and allow him more time on the playing field. Through the players, their drills, personal interviews, visits to their homes and social events, this film takes a look at one season of youth soccer.
