'Season of Miracles'
Based on the award-winning novel by Rusty Whitener, "Season of Miracles" follows the Robins, an underdog Little League team through their 1974 season with Rafer, a newcomer and autistic baseball savant.
Team leader Zack takes Rafer under his wing despite taunting from their rivals, the Hawks. Their coach and the rest of the Robins encourage Rafer as the team rises towards an unlikely championship season, which is less about winning and losing and more about living and dying.
"Season of Miracles" is a life-inspiring story about sportsmanship, friendship, love between a father and son, and courage in the face of adversity.
