Baseball player Mateo Narváez goes to an event and leaves with a daughter he didn’t know he had. Can he go from stranger to father, or will the game get in the way?

When rising star MATEO (24) goes to a signing event and comes home with a daughter, everything changes. In his career as second baseman he works the bat and makes strong defensive plays but what does he know about raising a little girl? His mother, CARLA (47) has a lot of faith in him but she's firm, he may be a big-time ball player but this is his responsibility. She's been mama, now she's just abuela.

Behind pink glasses, PENNY (5) looks up to Mateo and while she's afraid at first, the big stadium, other kids to play with, and popcorn in the stands is exciting.

When the news comes out, Mateo's friends don't stick around but new teammates step in. At the stadium, when Mateo loses track of Penny he meets EVA (30) who runs a memorabilia stand in the stadium and is raising her nephew, Javier. With all these changes it seems Mateo and Penny are the start of a happy new family but as the end of the regular season draws near and Penny's grandparents come to town, will their time together come to an end?

The Writer: Christiane Fogleboch

Screenwriter. Director. Milky tea maven and coffee zombie (but totally not a snob about it). If artybollocks wrote about me it would say: My work explores the relationship between cinematographic synesthesia and Dogme 95 minimalism with influences as diverse as John McTiernan, Jane Russell, and Kurosawa where new variations on natural filmmaking are synthesized from constructed and discovered discourse. The viewer is left with a hymn to the glass half full outposts of our condition. Fortunately, I can write blah-blah about myself. My genres are comedy and drama. Occasionally I leave those scripts alone in the dark with Barry White playing in the background and when I come back to my desk... Go to bio
