ABOUT THE FILM

THE ONLY REAL GAME is a fighters’ and dreamers’ story about the magic of baseball for people in a remote and troubled place. Once princely Manipur, a strife-torn border state in northeast India, defies civil war, drugs, gun traffic, and HIV/AIDS through love of our national pastime. Dreams chase reality in this ancient region when a small group of baseball-loving New Yorkers, and two Major League Baseball Envoy coaches, team up with Manipuri men, women and children to “Play Ball.” It’s a far away story that brings us to the heart of the great American Game, or as Babe Ruth put it, “the only real game in the world.”
