Set during one of the most turbulent times in history - the Second World War - and inspired by true events, THE THIRD HALF is a story of one of the most important things in the world: football. Dimitry, the owner of the small Macedonia Football Club, has more pressing worries on his mind than the war: his team hasn't won a match and his star player, Kosta the Count, is more focused on gambling, pick-pocketing and skirt chasing than football. Unbelievably, the situation only worsens when Kosta falls in love with Rebecca, the stunning daughter of a stern Jewish banker. As the team continues to lose one game after another, a desperate Dimitry hires notorious task master Rudolf Spitz: a German legendary for his inflexible discipline and hard work. But just as Spitz's work begins to pay off, the Nazi tanks roll through Macedonia, and the team finds itself at the very center of the war.
