Dare to Dream: The Story of the U.S. Women's Soccer Team

In this thrilling documentary created by the Peabody Award-winning creative team at HBO Sports, viewers will learn the incredible story of the United States Women's National Team, and how it developed from its creation in the late 1980s to its second Olympic performance in 2004.

From their meager beginning as "the red headed stepchild" of sports, through four World Cups and three Olympic games, Dare to Dream examines how Mia Hamm broke through as a media phenomenon; why Brandi Chastain`s celebratory moment stirred so much controversy; and how Julie Foudy, Michelle Akers, and Joy Fawcett overcame daunting obstacles to help the team step into history, and in the process lift the aspirations of all young women.
