Thirteen-year-old Tyler is trying to figure out what it means to be a man. His father isn’t much help, because he’s struggling with some pretty heavy ghosts from his own past, including the Vietnam War and a family tragedy. More than anything, Tyler wants to succeed in baseball. He spends a summer in New York with his aunt, uncle and cousins and is determined to make the All-Star team. He certainly plays baseball well enough to make the team, but, he doesn’t know how to handle anger. The guys around him aren’t too sure what to do with anger either. Do you have to save face all the time by being aggressive on the ball field? What about countries - how do they handle their anger?
