Return to the Rafters is a unique chronicle of the Celtics efforts to bring their present and future in line with their past. With the passing of Red Auerbach in 2006, General Manager Danny Ainge and Head Coach Doc Rivers were left to navigate the course back to the place that Auerbach's Celtics knew so well. The film uses archival audio of Auerbach to frame the pressure these two men face and they themselves discuss the pressure that shows its wear on their faces. Off-court scenes of the players give a rare look at the team as it tries to become a cohesive unit. The apprehension that is born out of a quarter century of disappointments is captured in the eyes and words of the team's fans, new and old, who have been starved of the taste of championship on which they were weaned.
This DVD follows the Celtics' entire 2007-2008 season...from the trades that acquired Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen...right through to the final buzzer and the awarding of the Championship trophy. Run time is approx. 90 min
