Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Twenty years after leaving Lake City, Alabama behind, Bobby Jackson returns to his hometown to bury the baseball coach who turned his life around, and reconnect with the childhood friends who have since drifted apart. Growing up in a largely white, military town, Bobby and his friends were always acutely aware of the fact that they were different. With the help of Coach Billy Adams, however, they found a place to call their own - the baseball diamond. They called themselves the 'Bama Rascals, and they could run the bases like it was nobody's business. But later in life, some members of the gang fared better than others. Now, the Rascals have returned to Lake City to be the pallbearers at Coach Billy's funeral. Will their reunion help to heal the wounds that have festered all these years, or will the sight of those familiar faces simply take the "Bama Rascals back to a place they need to leave behind in order to truly grow.
