Told through the eyes of six American basketball players, On the Map, recounts the inspirational, against all odds, story of the Maccabi Tel Aviv’s 1977 European Basketball Championship, giving Israelis a much needed morale boost as they deal with the aftermath of the 1973 Yom Kippur War, the 1972 Olympic massacre at Munich and the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight from Tel Aviv. Through the lens of sports, this award winning film presents a much broader story of how one team captured the heart of the nation. Interviews with former NBA commissioner David Stern and basketball icon Bill Walton are featured, as well.
