Movie Info

This deeply stirring documentary by award winning director Mirra Bank and narrated by Academy Award (R)-winner Melissa Leo, THE ONLY REAL GAME illuminates the magic of baseball for people in a remote and troubled place. Once princely Manipur, a strife-torn border state in northeast India, defies armed insurgency, drug trafficking and HIV/AIDS through love of our national pastime. Dreams chase reality when a band of baseball-loving New Yorkers, and two Major League Baseball Envoy coaches, team up with Manipuri men, women and children to "Play Ball." With gifted women and girls among the best players - as well as leaders of peace and justice initiatives - this far away story brings us to the heart of the great American Game, or as Babe Ruth put it, "the only real game in the world."
