Plot – In 1943 during World War II, women animate the American baseball championship. The film recalls the true story of the team "Peaches", from recruitment to training, from the matches to the private problems of some players, from the coach - an ex-player who got his career cut off because of an accident and now has drinking habits - to the meeting of the "old glories". However, when the war ends and the male players come back from the front, the business of the girls in the diamond loses solidity and, with it, also the beautiful dream.
