The film reveals the cultural, social, and political
complexities of Cuban baseball and America's relationship with the island
nation, while highlighting the players' friendship.
The feature was shot using Canon XL1 cameras. Nagel created
the initial rough cut using Apple Final Cut Pro. The Final Cut offline was then
imported to an Avid Adrenaline system using Automatic Duck software, where
Maurice Abbate (then with Three Fingered Louie and now at Refinery) performed
the final edit.
