The Other Dream Team Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This documentary traces the history of the Lithuanian national basketball team. For decades, the country's best athletes were abused and mistreated by the USSR. However, after the Soviet Union collapsed, the country fielded its own team for the 1992 Summer Olympics and became something of a cause célèbre. Although that was the same year the Unites States caused a worldwide sensation by sending pro players to the Olympics for the first time -- putting together a squad that included Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson -- the talented underdogs from Lithuania also captured the imagination of the public, thanks in part to their close relationship to the rock band the Grateful Dead. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
