Inspired by the incredible true-life story of Ralph Klein, director Eran Riklis' Playoff stars Danny Huston as an Israeli basketball coach who's hailed as a national hero after leading his country's team to a big win in the European championships, only to be branded a traitor after agreeing to coach the struggling West-German team. Max (Huston) is a winning coach with eyes on the NBA. After leading Maccabi Tel Aviv into European Champions, his future looks bright. Recognizing the potential for success when presented with the opportunity to put his coaching skills to use for the West-German team, Max - a native German, himself -- accepts the offer.

Popcorn, snacks, and soft drinks, plus Havdalah, and a brief post-movie discussion facilitated by Rabbi Grossman will round out the evening.
