Peter Davis, a big city business man, begrudgingly goes back to his little hometown of Summerville to settle his late father's estate. When he gets there, he finds himself once again seduced by the pace of the small town life as well as caught up in the one thing Summerville prides itself on: Softball. While Peter renews his hometown friendships with Murr, Rocky, as well as many other eccentric characters, he finds himself falling for Summerville all over again... and also for a new face in town, Samantha. As Peter is torn between his new life up north and his old one down south, he is forced to make a decision on what is more important to him: The security of what he has, or the memories of what he almost lost. Written by Brooks Benjamin

Did You Know?


The scene where the Hot Lady gives Peter Davis the come-hither eyes and the man pops up from behind her to warn him off was actually shot during one of the coldest and snowiest days in Tennessee that year. Director Brooks Benjamin only had a very limited time where he could shoot that scene because the very next frame of that shot shows several flakes of snow falling into the shot. See more »


Rocky: [looking at a picture of Peter's dad with his old softball team] Remember how I'd spend the night almost every Friday just so we could wake up early on Saturday to go watch him play?
Peter: I remember how I'd want to sleep in and you'd drag me to those games.
Rocky: Bull, Peter. You loved watching your dad play and you know it. And I'd say it helped, too, because you was looking just like him out there...
Peter: [grabs Rocky by the shoulders] Look. Just because you loved to watch the man play... doesn't mean everyone...

Crazy Credits

Jackie Barnes (1st AD) was purchasing food for craft services during production and went to pay for the items. She was short one cent, so Cristina Moreno, a good friend of Jackie's, gave her one penny, thus earning her the credit "Penny Grip". See more »

The Stakes Have Never Been Lower....
31 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't think I've ever seen a movie where the stakes were so low. Softball? Who cares, not important. Will he sell his dad's house? Probably eventually, but no real urgency there either.

Let's throw in some daddy issues and a predictable love story just for good measure. Get some "indie" cred. Half this movie is song/montages. That's lazy story telling at its finest. And the characters seemed like clichés of things that don't even exist.

Basically I just spent the entire movie waiting for something to happen. Well, what finally happened was.........the film ended.

They needed to raise the stakes somehow. I just didn't care at all about these people or this world. I do think Wes Murphy has loads of talent though. But it's hard to shine when the material is so awful.
