Richard Harris (who also receives writing and directing credits) portrays Eitan, yesterday's soccer hero waiting for tomorrow. He consults the unheroic prospects of having to find a new profession and having to face a loving woman who doesn't understand his problems. Meanwhile he is idolized by Nimrod (Kim Burfield), the best ten-year-old soccer player in his village. Filmed in Israel amid a stark landscape, Bloomfield (also known as The Hero) features a stunning original soundtrack performed by Johnny Harris, Maurice Gibb, Lulu, and Tony Colton.
