All-Stars is a comedy that follows the ups and downs of a 10-year-old girls’ softball team, focusing not just on the young players but also on their overly ambitious parents throughout a rec league season that culminates in the selection of an All-Star team.
Veteran coach Lance Grayden, who originally hoped to mentor older, more seasoned players, finds himself teaching a group of novices instead. Amidst the struggle to impart fundamental skills to the girls, Lance is further tested by parents fueled by unrealistic expectations and obsessive competitiveness. As he navigates the tension between genuine sportsmanship and the drive to win, the film satirically explores the adult-driven circus that often surrounds youth sports.
