The story of legendary Israeli basketball coach Max Stoller who became a national hero when he won the European Championship with Maccabi Tel Aviv in the late Seventies. But Max became a national traitor equally fast, when he accepted against all odds the job of turning the totally hopeless West German national team into Olympic contenders. Max succeeds in reinventing the German team despite resistance from the players. When he discovers new facts about old family secrets he realizes that his whole life has been based on betrayal and lies, and that one cannot run away forever from one’s own past and demons.
