Synopsis

In 1957, in the pews of San Juan Bautista Church, Angel Macias and other boys of Monterrey's slums try to escape the dismal conditions that surround them. Hunger, broken homes, alcoholic parents, dirt floors, corrugated shacks for houses—life holds anything but promise for these forsaken children. But there is one ray of light. After Mass on Sundays, their priest gathers them around an old radio where they listen to Spanish broadcasts of the Brooklyn Dodgers.

A chance encounter with the Mexico City All-Star traveling team inspires Angel and his friends to form an organized Little League team. Their dream: to play one real game in the United States. But first they must build a field and find a coach.
