Storyline

We also visited the MLB Hall of Fame, the Negro League Museum and the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa. We interviewed father and sons, mothers and daughters as well as fellow Parkinsonians everywhere we went. 50% of the proceeds from the sale of this film will be donated to the Michael J Fox Foundation.

Heart Felt yet Funny
31 March 2006 | by sumsun_10See all my reviews

A fabulous film that can be enjoyed by both genders and all ages. Very touching yet filled with laughs. I loved being able to see all of the different baseball parks across the U.S.! The Director, Robert, and his Father, Dan, have a fantastic relationship with an immense amount of love for one another. Both have a great sense of humor which allows for many laughs during the movie.

Speaking from someone who does not know a lot about Parkinson's Disease, I found this movie to be very motivating and it left me wanting to learn more about Parkinson's. The movie has a contagious energy had me crying and laughing. Thank you for your hard work.
