A Working Class Rebound

In Israel, the struggle to get a job becomes, for some, a game of survival. The Workplace Annual Basketball Tournament begins. Amongst the teams aspiring for championship are: Team IRS, Team “Hapoalim” Bank, the Ministry of Law team, the Jerusalem Zoo team and the Tnuva Dairy Delivery dream team. This film follows the Tnuva team’s hard working laborers who sweat all the way to pay day.  The real contest is over keeping one’s job but as far as the six Tnuva milk truck drivers and team mates are concerned, the real battle is on the basketball court. The Tnuva team’s quest for championship is documented throughout the season. The team members’ greatest aspiration is to reach the ‘regionals’ in the southern resort paradise of Eilat: three days of fun in the sun, pool-side activities and free popsicles, all courtesy of the Tnuva management.
