Join us for the Montreal premiere of the stirring story of sports, patriotism and personal growth. After years of defeat, Team Israel is ﬁnally ranked among the world's best in 2017, eligible to compete in the prestigious international tournament. Their odyssey takes them from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem where they are greeted as heroes, to Seoul where they must debunk their has-been, wannabe reputations. Their line-up included several Jewish American Major League baseball players all of whom have a tenuous relationship with Judaism. With their Mensch on the Bench mascot by their side, the team laughs, cries and does much soul-searching, discovering the pride of representing Israel on the world stage.
