Actor Stephen Hill portrays the legendary baseball player Jackie Robinson, who was the first black major-leaguer, in this documentary that mixes reenactments with archival footage in order to pay tribute to an amazing athlete who became a lightning rod for much of the country's ugliest prejudices and in the process became a symbol for desegregation and tolerance as well as the first player to have his number retired by every single big-league club.
