An Oscar™-nominated film and one of the most widely discussed and well-received documentaries of the decade, Hoop Dreams chronicles the universal process of growing up, coming of age, the love and conflict between fathers and sons, brothers, best friends and spouses. Hoop Dreams tells the remarkable true story of two American dreamers plucked from poverty and given the opportunity to attend a suburban prep school and play for a legendary high school basketball coach. These two young men soon discover how easily their dreams of basketball glory can become obscured amid the intense pressures of academics, family life, economics and athletic competitiveness. But in the end, both boys fight to remain focused on their dream, no matter how hard tragedy strikes or how desperate their situation becomes.
