Nothing was going to stop Roy Hobbs from fulfilling his boyhood dream of baseball superstardom.
Robert Redford stars in this inspiring fable that begins when 14-year-old Hobbs (Redford) fashions a powerful bat from a fallen oak tree. He soon impresses major league scouts with his ability, fixing his extraordinary talent in the mind of sportswriter Max Mercy (Duvall), who eventually becomes instrumental in Hobbs` career. But a meeting with a mysterious woman shatters his dream.
Years pass and an older Hobbs reappears as a rookie for the New York Knights.
Overcoming physical pain and defying those who have a stake in seeing the Knights lose, Hobbs, with his boyhood bat, has his chance to lead the Knights to the pennant and to finally fulfill his dream.
