Numbed by despair, the youth of Camden, NJ, one of America’s poorest cities, don’t know who to fear more-- the police or the violent drug dealers. Resident Bryan Morton leads a charge to reclaim Pyne Poynt Park as a safe space for little league teams and the community. Against all odds, Morton rallies an array of stakeholders and transforms Pyne Poynt into a field of dreams, where for two sacred hours, the youth can play freely in the field.
