Synopsis

Shawn Harrington returned to Marshall High School as an assistant coach years after appearing as a player in the iconic basketball documentary film Hoop Dreams. In January of 2014, Marshalls struggling team was about to improve after the addition of a charismatic but troubled player. Everything changed, however, when two young men opened fired on Harringtons car as he drove his daughter to school. Using his body to shield her, Harrington was struck and paralyzed.The mistaken-identity shooting was followed by a series of events that had a devastating impact on Harrington and Marshalls basketball family. Over the next three years, as a shocking number of players were murdered, it became obvious that the dream of the game providing a better life had nearly dissolved.All the Dreams Weve Dreamed is a true story of courage, endurance, and friendship in one of Americas most violent neighborhoods. Author Rus Bradburd, who has an intimate forty-year relationship to Chicago basketball, tells Shawns story with empathy and care, exploring the intertwined tragedies of gun violence, health-care failure, racial assumptions, struggling educational systems, corruption in athleticsand the hope that can survive them all.
