The Rockthrower

THE ROCKTHROWER - You are David Willis, a down and out baseball scout. Once you were a Major League pitcher, loved by everyone; now ignored and on your last leg of a career. But when you see footage of a Palestinian/Israeli conflict, it transfixes you on a new potential pitching discovery - a Palestinian teen throwing rocks with the speed and accuracy that defies even the best pitchers on most Major League Baseball teams. On a wild hunch, a wing and a prayer, you decide to travel into unforeseen territory to make this kid a star and redeem yourself in the eyes of your peers. But will your own heritage of being Jewish and your dark past as a disgraced baseball player put this endeavor towards a path of failure before its even had a chance to succeed?
