Summary:
Everyone knows Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan of the 1992 American Olympic Dream Team. This is the story of the Other Dream Team. They didn't bring their country the gold medal, they brought something much more valuable. After leading the USSR to a gold medal (and victory over the USA) at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, Sarunas Marciulionis and Arvydas Sabonis were poster boys for the Soviet sports machine. Four years later, after the fall of the Soviet Union, they emerged as symbols of democracy.

Notes / Track List
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
