Here the story revolves around the coach, a washed up baseball star who is no longer allowed to play in the Korean baseball league. To get back into the league's good graces he decides to do some community service by coaching a baseball team at a school for the deaf. While the coach has attitude problems at first, and thinks he's too good to be a coach for these kids who can't even hear the crack of the bat, he soon finds the passion for the sport that he lost long ago.
The main character on the team is the pitcher who lost his hearing only in middle school. He doesn't fit in with the other team members and doesn't want to join the team. But, because of his incredible skill, the coach convinces him to play for the team, and he gives the other boys confidence to improve and play better.
The team goes into the national tournament, up against the best teams in the country with only a 10 man team (there are only 21 boys in the whole school). No replacements for injuries and no subs during the course of the game. Will the boys have what it takes to compete against the best of the best? Watch and find out!
This movie was formulaic at best, but as all these sport movies tend to be, it was heartwarming and humorous at times. At the moment it's playing in Seoul, subtitled, at certain CGVs such as Myongdong. Look for the (영문자막) next to the title. Yea, they don't have write in English that there is an English subtitled movie. Great marketing as ever. As usual, catching their targeted audience and whatnot... I wish I worked in the marketing department for CGV... oh what I would do with their English language marketing....
