Named after the local soccer stadium in the Southern Israeli town of Beer Sheba, VASERMIL tells the story of three teenagers from separate marginalized communities, who pin their hopes on soccer as a way out. Shlomi, Adiel and Dima are recruited by the coach of the local soccer team to take part in the Beersheba Youth Championship, held on Independence Day at the Vasermil Stadium. Success at the tournament means getting noticed by the scouts of the local soccer empire, Hapoel Beersheba. In order to win, Shlomi, Adiel and Dima, each with their own set of adversities, will have to learn to play as a team and overcome their differences.

"A thoughtful Israeli film centering on three teenagers from marginalized communities in the town of Be’er Sheva, director Mushon Salmona’s Vasermil offers an illuminating view of second- and third-generation immigrant life... Recommended." - Video Librarian

    "A winner! The young cast is outstanding! It's also one of the most unflinching looks at the tension burbling under the surface in modern day Israel that I've ever seen."
