It’s 1973 and 17-year-old Bliss Bennet has the perfect life. The only problem is she wishes she were someone else. While her wealthy family expects her to make her debut, go to a suitable college, and eventually drop out to be a housewife, Bliss pursues her real love: softball. She’s good enough to get a scholarship to Arizona State, the best team in the country. Too bad her parents are dead set against it. After her high school team wins the state championship, they’re selected to represent the United States in a high-stakes tournament against the Soviet Union’s best teenage softball players. Bliss sees an opportunity to prove to her parents that softball is her destiny. If she can win they’ll have to let her go to Arizona. Lose and she’ll never play softball again.
