Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella hears a voice in his corn field tell him, "If you build it, he will come." He interprets this message as an instruction to build a baseball field on his farm, upon which appear the ghosts of Shoeless Joe Jackson and the other seven Chicago White Sox players banned from the game for throwing the 1919 World Series. When the voices continue, Ray seeks out a reclusive author to help him understand the meaning of the messages and the purpose for his field. Written by

When Annie is discussing the mortgage with Ray, she says that they've already missed payments on the mortgage. But then she mentions later asking the bank if they can miss a couple of payments, then the bank 'sells the note' to Mark and then Mark's group demands full payment immediately. This would indicate a seriously late mortgage situation (not to mention Mark being a very dysfunctional/miserly brother) that doesn't fit the time line. See more
