As a result of the U.S. embargo, Cuban-national baseball players must establish residency elsewhere to have a shot at playing in the major leagues in the U.S. Happy, Carlos, and Baro are three Cuban-born players risking everything to achieve their dreams. A Cuban-American sports agent in Los Angeles supports the players, paying for all of their training expenses, in exchange for 20% of their signing bonuses if they make it onto a pro team. But a threat looms for the players. If it seems like the player will not make it to the big leagues, they will find themselves cut loose and left alone with no way home in a strange country. The trials and tribulations of these three Cuban men’s journeys to get to the big leagues is beautifully presented in vivid, intimate, and frustrating detail in this Audience Award Winner for Best Film at the 2020 Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival.
