South Bay is a leafy commuter town on the southern shore of Long Island, New York, known for both its community spirit and successful youth soccer program. Everything changed when the town of South Bay lost 48 of its brothers and sisters in the September 11th terrorist attacks, including legendary varsity soccer coach, Dan Dunham.
Amidst a cloud of sadness, with tremendous fortitude and resilience, South Bay would rise once again. On long, green grassy fields where they were once innocent and carefree, a team of boys, led by one of Dunham’s former pupils, captures the hope and imagination of a heartbroken small town.
Inspired by true events, Utopia is a personal, heartfelt story of a high school soccer team bring a community together in the wake of 9/11.
