Two brothers strive for their lacrosse dream in ;The Medicine Game,' airing tonight

Watch Lacrosse Documentary ‘The Medicine Game’ Tonight on PBS

Tonight, a documentary seven years in the making about lacrosse-playing Onondaga brothers will premiere on the World Channel, which is carried by many PBS stations across the country.

The Medicine Game follows Jerome "Hiana" and Jeremy Thompson, who dream of playing lacrosse at Syracuse University. Filmmakers Jason Halpin (The Medicine Game's writer) and Luke Korver (its director) first met them in 2006, and filmed their journey, which turned out to be more dramatic than anyone expected. An uncharacteristic brawl between the brothers nearly derails their quest. "There were a few times when I felt like it wasn’t going to end well," Korver told Lacrosse All Stars. "When both of the boys were in their third year of community college, and it was looking pretty bleak, at least in terms of getting the ending we were hoping for."

To learn how you can see The Medicine Game when it airs this evening (or in the future), visit the "Set Your Station" page at WorldChannel.org.
