This anticipated sequel tells the inspiring story of Aulcie Perry, a basketball legend who inspired Maccabi Tel Aviv to an upset win in the European Championship in 1977. After the season, to the surprise of many, Aulcie Perry converted to Judaism, adopted the Hebrew name Elisha ben Avraham, and became an Israeli citizen. This uplifting film tells the story of a remarkable athlete who captured the spirit of a nation, triumphant and victorious against all odds, and put Israel on the map.
