White Panther

There’s always place for hate – the inconceivable story of a Nazi gang in Israel. The deceivingly peaceful Sea of Galilee is the backdrop of an inspiring story of violence, hope, and rebirth of one young man and the unexpected people who love him.

In the 1990s a million former USSR Jews arrived in Israel. The immigrants, who dreamt of a better future, were despised by the local population who feared their “invasion.” While many embraced the Israeli lifestyle, others were enraged, conforming to a life in self-made Russian ghettoes. These ghettoes were a fertile ground for self-hating Jewish skinheads.

White Panther is the story of Alex, a young Russian immigrant, whose family falls apart after the death of his father in the Israeli army. In retaliation, Alex joins a skinhead gang, led by his older brother. An unexpected meeting with David, a religious Moroccan Jew, gives Alex a chance to pursue his longtime dream of becoming a boxer like his father. Alex finds himself torn between his two father figures – his violent older brother and his new Jewish trainer – only to discover the truth about those he so admires.
