Two teams. Two countries. One game. This documentary tells the story of an African American youth baseball team from Oakland, California that travels to meet and play baseball with their Cuban counterparts. It documents the real friendships that develop between the players and coaches while revealing the everyday challenges that young people face in their respective neighborhoods.
