A baseball player whose professional career was cut short due to personal problems is suddenly awakened and invigorated by a young-man with Down syndrome who works at the local grocery store. Calvin Campbell is a retired baseball player and a father to Katie Campbell,an independent teenager. One day when he goes shopping for alcohol at the local market he meets an employee of the market. He talks to produce and is shocked when produce gives him a hug..
An washed up ex baseball player meets a young man with down syndrome and fines meaning to his life.
Let me just start out by saying that I think this movie is pretty good, I was expecting more since, really, there aren't too many movies that revolve around people with down syndrome, but this was quite nice. I like the story, its nice and harmless. I do wish that they'd put more emphasis on Produce (the young man with down syndrome) and how he lives on a regular basis, during most of the movie he is at work, but its not really about produce as much as it is about the ex-pro baseball player. There are some scenes that feel a little rushed emotionally but the intention is there. But, lets not forget that this is a Christian movie, but how does it fare Christian-wise? Well, it just touches on the subject and it doesn't really get all that preachy so I think that's a plus. All in all its a pretty good film with a nice message and a good ending, (you'll see what I mean). I think its worth a check out for anybody who is interested, its only a 15$ movie and well worth it. 7/10.
