Summary Touching, passionate, and provocative, this documentary follows the riveting journey of a group of pre-adolescent soccer players-half of them Palestinian, half of them Israeli-who come together to play on an all-star team in the world's largest international youth soccer tournament. Behind the concept of the team is the powerful force of Johann Olav Koss, one of the greatest winter Olympians ever and the founder of Right to Play, a children's charity that promotes conflict resolution through sport in more than twenty impoverished countries. Can mutual respect and understanding be discovered on the soccer pitch? More importantly, can it be translated to off-field life in the tinderbox of the Middle East? A Team for Peace is a true hero's journey as we watch to see if the children can overcome centuries of hate and emotionally documented personal tragedies in search of a peaceful future together.
