Leg Before Wicket. Documentary film. DVD/NTSC.
“When the British finally left the Indian subcontinent in 1947, the country then known as India split into two.... India and Pakistan.
Fifty years, four wars, and a million deaths later, our two countries remained locked in one of the most dangerous conflicts in the world...”
So begins Leg Before Wicket, a story about the bitter conflict between two nations and about the common passion that is promising to build a bridge between them. It is also the story of the Chicago Giants, a team of raucous Indian and Pakistani cricketers, who have, in a foreign land, overcome a lifetime of distrust to find friendship on the cricket ground.
The film follows the Giants through a summer of cricket, and makes a journey to India and Pakistan – including the disputed region of Kashmir – to explore the roots of the conflict, its many manifestations over the decades, and the recent phenomenon known as "cricket diplomacy".
And it answers one of life's more perplexing questions: What is cricket, anyway?
