Ishaq, a 13 years old Palestinian boy wants to play soccer with his
friends. What seems natural to any boy this age that can play soccer
whenever he wants is no easy task for Ishaq.
Ishaq lives in a closed military zone which was created after the
separation wall was built. The wall was built around his house and
created an enclave in which the house is disconnected from both Palestine and Israel.
Ishaq must get to a soccer game, his friends are waiting for him but it is not that simple....
Is he gonna make it on time?
'Offside' reflects the absurd of the Israeli occupation through a personal human perspective. There is no politics for little Ishaq, his main wish is to play soccer with his friends like any normal kid in the world.
