About GLOVEPress Release (pdf)
KIM Sang-nam (JUNG Jae-young, Moss) is a hero on the pitcher's mound, but thanks to his drunk and disorderly behavior off the field, he now faces the prospect of a lifetime expulsion from Korea's pro-baseball league. Desperate to salvage his public image, Sang-nam's manager hauls him to the countryside to serve as the guest coach for the baseball team at a school for the hearing impaired.
With just 10 players, Chungju Sacred Heart's team has challenges other high school baseball teams don't. They can't hear the crack of the bat, so it's harder to follow the ball. Their ability to communicate on the field is limited, making teamwork more difficult. And they have to fight against others' pity and perceptions, just to be seen as competitors.
The students and their advisers are enthusiastic about entering their first national tournament. But Sang-nam is cynical about the team's chances - until he sees glimpses of his younger self reflected in the boys as they play. Their shared love for the game may be enough to change the course of their lives...
