Beitar Jerusalem FC is known for having the most controversial fans in the Israeli soccer league. Their most loyal – and most right-wing – fans are known as ‘la Familia’ and pride themselves that the team has remained ‘forever pure’, never having fielded an Arab player. When in 2012 the team selects two Chechen Muslims to join the squad, controversy, racism and hatred embroil the team. This Irish co-produced documentary is a disturbing portrait of a society rife with extreme nationalism, and a timely topic when right-wing politics globally is on the rise.
