Would you be amazed to know that Brazil, famous for its football, revolutionized basketball for ever in the mid 80’s but this fact went unnoticed? Brazil handled the USA its first ever lost in an official tournament playing on their soil. Led by a mystic coach and players who loved to score, Brazil brought a different style to the game. They relied heavily on the recently created 3 point line years before any other team. The documentary revisits the thriller gold medal matchup in the 1987 Pan American Games in Indianapolis and draws a parallel between style and stats seen in the Brazilian way of playing then and the NBA now.
