A filmmaker in his sixties – an inner city coach’s son estranged in his youth from his now-deceased father – spends 5 years on ball fields in inner city Oakland and Havana, following the lives of two extraordinary youth coaches and their players. Life for both coaches and players are filled with challenges of poverty, death, health, and heartbreak. In 2010, Coach Roscoe Bryant and nine Oakland players travel to Havana to play Coach Nicolas’ team. For the next week, the players and coaches eat, dance, swim, argue and play baseball together. Real friendships form. But when a parent of one of the players is murdered in Oakland, it brings back the reality of the inescapable challenges of life in the inner city. (Documentary, 2013, 91 min) Director: Eugene Corr
