It’s the summer of ’69. Man prepares to walk on the Moon. In a farmer’s field in upstate New York, Woodstock is about to happen. Martin is 12 years old and dreams of playing on the neighbourhood baseball team. When he doesn’t make the cut, his father steps in and organises a B team. After the initial euphoria, Martin realises that his team’s biggest talent is finding new ways to lose and that his father doesn’t know a thing about baseball, 12 year-old boys or his own son.
Unexpectedly thrown together, father and son spend a summer full of hope and disappointment, line drives and foul balls.
