They started out on empty fields in small towns and cities across America, a handful of friends and family gathered to cheer them from the sidelines.

They were Mia Hamm, Brandi Chastain, Julie Foudy, Michelle Akers and Joy Fawcett - cultural icons at they forefront of a revolution that would change the landscape of sports.
HBO Sport's Dare To Dream is the story of how a remarkable group of athletes who struggled for years to earn an audience succeeded in lifting the aspirations of young women throughout the world.
