Offside

Ishaq, a 13 year old Palestinian boy, wants to play football with his friends. For everyone else, this is just another game, but for him it’s a real struggle. Ishaq lives in a closed military area which was created when the separation wall was built around his home, cutting the house off from Palestine and Israel. Ishaq must overcome many obstacles to get to the game, and his friends are losing their patience… Will he get to the game on time? Offside tries to portray the crazy situation caused by the Israeli occupation, through an abstract human situation, without going into politics. Ishaq wants to play football with his friends and to be free, as every child in the world is entitled to be.
