Little Victories

The story of Tamar and Michal, two Tel-Avivian mothers and members of a catch ball team, and of “Coach Moodie”, a charismatic and somewhat odd man, who is determined to release them from their net of daily battles and make them fall in love with a completely different net. Moodie is convinced that they can handle everything, and they start to believe him. As training becomes more intense and the team starts to win, life summons them both trials and challenges: Tamar is trying to cope with being a widow, Michal is fighting cancer, and they learn that if they want to become real players, on the court and in life, the most important thing is to keep playing.
