Extra Innings is set against the enduring magic of the 1960s. The movie is a coming of age story of a young man, David Sabah, caught between pursuing his dream of becoming a professional baseball player and the pressures of his conservative Syrian-Jewish family and religion. On top of this, the family must deal with the reality of mental health.

Extra Innings (2019) Drama | 2019 (USA)
Director: Albert Dabah, Brian DrillingerWriters: Albert DabahStars: Aidan Pierce Brennan, Geraldine Singer, Meg ScanlonSummary: David is a misfit in his family. An overbearing father Eli, an absent-minded mother Esther, an emotionally withdrawn older brother Morris, a free-spirited and eccentric older sister Vivian, and a scholarly goody-two-shoes sister Rita round out the Sabah household. Eli and Esther have recently returned home from Israel with their son MORRIS. While there, Morris received psychiatric treatment and has shown no improvement. Rarely ever leaving his room, a constant loop of classical music roars from within Morris's sanctum, providing a soundtrack for the Sabah home. When tragedy strikes and the music stops, David's only escape from the looming darkness is on the baseball field. Not only does it open up a world for him outside of his community and religion, it offers a reprieve from the dramatics of life at home. He finds when his family won't support him, others will.
