On the tiny island of Curaçao, Manager Vernon Isabella has sent his Little League All-Stars to the World Series for seven consecutive years, routinely defeating such baseball powerhouses as Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, to win a spot in Williamsport. At its core, Boys of Summer is a film about the universally beloved pastime of baseball, examined from a unique perspective. More than that, it’s a film about children carrying the privilege and burden of a nation’s pride, and about athletes competing at the highest level and having the time of their lives.
