A dream that takes more than a quarter century to achieve
20 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

How team members of Chinese women's basketball team struggle to overcome difficulties, personal or technical, to achieve crownation in competition. This was the goal at the time for the real team.

However, in real life, the year of 1957 is the year Chairman Mao started the political movement "Anti-Rightists Movement", which is the beginning of a series political movements started by Mao and brought China to the brink of collapse. The basketball team, like any other team sport, and every aspect of life, as matter of fact, suffers greatly under political persecution, and it was not until more than a quarter century later in the 1980's, did Chinese women's team achieved something that was close to what depicted in the movie.
