Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel is a stirring story of sports, patriotism and personal growth. The movie charts the underdog journey of Israel's national baseball team competing, for the first time, in the World Baseball Classic in 2017. Jeremy Bleich, a hometown star who is one of the players featured in the film, will be here to introduce the movie and answer questions at the end.
