WITH THE THREAT OF RENEWED HOSTILITIES LOOMING, THE LEADERS OF Israel and the Palestinian Authority agree to end the intractable crisis once and for all. The solution: A winner-take-all soccer match. One game will decide who will remain in the Holy Land, and who must go. The stakes couldn’t be higher for the chairman of the Israeli Football Association and his Palestinian counterpart. As the fateful match draws closer, both men struggle with ambivalence about their place on the world stage while pursuing every advantage to ensure victory. Tackling a serious subject as a politically incorrect “mock-documentary”, The 90 Minute War reveals the sometimes petty nature of the differences dividing the Middle East.
