Hero -- One man's broken relationship with his family fills him with the determination to make a difference in his town, and to win back the son he left behind. Reaching out through the game they both love, he deliberately forms a baseball team designed to involve both fathers and sons in a common effort. His actions begin to have a powerful effect, reaching so far as to turn the heart of a father in prison, and transform a town. After all, every boy needs a HERO.
Hero -- The heartbeat of HERO is told by the filmmakers, all of them fathers themselves who seek to strengthen or restore their relationship with their children. That's why they made this movie for all fathers (and mothers) to be inspired to do the same.
