Home Run the movie synopsis:
Reckless living and a team suspension force a baseball star back to his hometown and into recovery — where a group of addicts help him face old wounds, new opponents, and the love he left behind.
Big dreams and big plays took professional baseball player Cory Brand far from home, but the memories of his abusive father continue to haunt him. After years of hard partying and reckless living, a DUI and team suspension send him back to the town where he started, desperate to save his career.
Forced to coach the local Little League team and spend eight-weeks in a faith-based recovery program called Celebrate Recovery, Cory must finally face old wounds, new adversaries, and the love he left behind. His journey leads him to a truth more powerful than he ever imagined—and toward the most important play of his life.
What is Celebrate Recovery?
A Christ centered program that gives people the resources and relationships to help recover from
life’s hurts, habits, and hang-ups. This is a program for anyone struggling with past or current dysfunctions or compulsions, whether they are affecting their own life or the lives of those around them. The purpose of Celebrate Recovery
is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the Eight Recovery Principles found in the Beatitudes and Christ-Centered Twelve Steps. As we progress through the program, we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.
Celebrate Recovery meets from 5-8:30 p.m. every Monday in the Durant First Baptist Church Chapel at Second and Evergreen. Childcare is provided.
