Synopsis:

The love and draw of baseball create family complications for preteen David in early 1960s Brooklyn. The dirt and dust of the ballfield are this boy’s place of solace from a strict Syrian Jewish upbringing at home, and he’s becoming quite good at the game. David’s cherished older sister Vivian is an uncouth free spirit. David’s older brother Morris is a troubled schizophrenic savant confined to his room and the vinyl records of classical music that calm him. David’s parents, Eli and Ester, don’t speak of the failures and flaws in their family, creating a tense household and their own unrecognized depression. They pin their hopes on young David but when tragedy strikes who will they turn too?
