It's June, 1982. Israel has just invaded Lebanon. Unfortunately, this action takes place while the World Cup soccer tournament is held in Spain. Cohen, an Israeli reserves soldier, has tickets for the games in Barcelona, but he is stuck in South Lebanon, seeking out the enemy. Things go from bad to worse for him when he is captured by a band of retreating PLO soldiers en route to Beirut. Cohen's only solace is that the PLO leader, Ziad, shares his passion for the Italian national soccer team. Laced with humor, wit and violence, Cup Final is a subtle tale of shared humanity.
