Plot Summary

THE ONLY REAL GAME explores the power of baseball for people in a remote and troubled place. The once princely state of Manipur, in volatile northeast India, defies gun violence, trafficking, and HIV/AIDS through a surprising passion for America's National Pastime. Manipur entered the Indian Union under protest in 1949, triggering a corrosive Separatist conflict. For decades baseball has delivered release from daily struggles and a dream for healing a wounded society. This dream moves toward reality when First Pitch - a band of baseball-loving New Yorkers - and two Major League Baseball Envoy coaches join Manipuri men, women and children to "Play Ball." This Manipuri story brings us to the heart of the Great American Game - or as Babe Ruth called it, "the only real game in the world." Written by Mirra Bank
