Summary
Drama in which 16-year-old Cole McKay's (Michael Angarano) struggle for independence is put to the test as his South Boston Irish-Catholic family implodes around him. Older brother, Terry (Tom Guiry), is descending into a life of drugs and crime; pregnant sister, Kathleen (Emily VanCamp), is being sent away to cover the shame of unwed motherhood and Cole's father, Desmond (Brendan Gleeson), spends his days in a fog of alcohol and self-pity, silently torturing himself over what might have been. The one thing keeping young Cole's head above water is his love of baseball. A talented pitcher, Cole overcomes self-doubt and family indifference to fight his way into the state championships. To get there, however, he must make a life and death decision, a decision that will change the McKay family forever
