Synopsis by Sarah Ing
Every legend has a beginning. Come Fly With Me is the story of Michael Jordan's. Though now his name is linked to greatness, in his youth Jordan struggled like so many athletes, even getting cut from his high school team. The 50-minute tape explores Jordan's roots in North Carolina and subsequent drafting into the NBA. The story is told through interviews with those that knew Jordan best -- his coaches and friends. Come Fly With Me was made before Jordan's run of championship wins with the Chicago Bulls. Still, the graceful player's destiny is apparent in the early game footage. Despite Jordan's sterling reputation, the shining moments of this video are the action segments. From slam-dunk contests to college clips, Come Fly With Me recalls a younger Jordan, hungry and eager to please, and provides a captivating addition to the sports fan's collection.
