This is the story of Israels 1977 basketball team
the first team to bring the European Cup to Israel, just after the Yom Kippur War and the Munich Olympics. When this ragtag team of Israelis and Americans won, Israel was placed firmly on the map. With incredible footage of 1970s Israel, the film features interviews with Bill Walton, David Stern, Tal Brody and the other athletes. Told through the eyes of six American basketball players who joined Maccabi, On the Map honors Israeli heroes and mesmerizes fans of the game.
