Little League baseball in America's most dangerous city is more than just a game. It's life.
On a set of corridors nicknamed Heroin Highway, the young men and women of the North Camden Little League navigate the hazards of the drug trade to come to and from the sandlot at Pyne Poynt Park. The league plays a vital role in creating change in the struggling community of North Camden by bringing families, coaches, and children of all ages together.
PYNE POYNT is about more than the power of sports to help children rise above poverty. It's a documentary about life and death on one small, grassless oasis in America where the chances of success aren't good but where the phrase "hitting it out of the park" takes on a new meaning. Each at-bat, each inning, and each game the kids play is one more positive tally mark on life's bigger scoreboard.
