A documentary film that tells the incredible story of the soccer league which took place in Ghetto Theresienstadt, 40 miles North West of Prague now in the Czech Republic. From 1942 to 1944, Jewish prisoners played hundreds of soccer matches on improvised fields set up in the court-yards of the Barracks where they lived. Thousands of spectators watched a mixture of professional and amateur players and briefly escaped the reality of their terrible plight: the hunger, the sickness and death. All the while they lived in a shroud of fear cast by the terror of the transports that sent people to the 'East' and their certain death.
