Where were you at 5:04 p.m. on October 17, 1989? Filmmaker and lifelong San Francisco Giants fan Jon Leonoudakis was at Candlestick Park with his brother, Tim, armed with a camcorder and a Canon SLR to capture all the pageantry of his first World Series game. He left with a gripping account of every heart-stopping moment that day, as well as the Loma Prieta earthquake's aftermath and the resumption of Game 3 ten days later. Mixing archival news clips with his personal footage and photographs, Leonoudakis presents a unique and personal perspective, exploring themes of fandom, family, civic pride, baseball and the Bay Areas triumph over tragedy. Journey back in time to experience 'The Day the World Series Stopped'.
