Just turned eighteen Cliff decides that he needs to break away from the safety of homelife and embark upon an adventure When he meets Butch it seems as though his life will change forever Based on the short stories of Bruce La Bruce

Husband-and-wife team Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck direct this drama following an upcoming young Dominican baseball player, Miguel 'Sugar' Santos (Algenis Perez Soto), as he progresses from training camps in his homeland to play for a Minor League club in Iowa. There, he finds himself boarding with an elderly couple and trying out his moves as starting pitcher in front of a demanding home town crowd. Off the field, he hangs out with his fellow Spanish-speaking ballplayers, befriends a former college star and conducts a tentative flirtation with Anne (Ellary Porterfield): the strawberry blonde, churchgoing granddaughter of his hosts.
