Slovenski opis filma:

Zgodba o dveh junakih – velikem igralcu bejzbola Jackieju Robinsonu in legendarnem menedžerju, Branchu Rickeyju, ki si zamisli za tiste čase drzno in nezaslišano potezo. Pisalo se je leto 1947 in Robinson je pri 27 letih postal prvi Afroameričan, ki je kadarkoli zaigral za enega od največjih klubov ameriške lige. Oblekel je dres Brooklyn Dodgers, ki je s prihodom Robinsona prekinil dolgoletno rasno segregacijo. Igralec je bil sprva deležen sovražnih vzklikov, groženj s smrtjo in neprimernih napisov. A je bil kljub temu pogumen, se z rasizmom spopadal z molkom in s smehom ter sčasoma pridobil simpatije.

Originalni opis filma:

In 1946, Jackie Robinson is a Negro League baseball player who never takes racism lying down. Branch Rickey is a Major League team executive with a bold idea. To that end, Rickey recruits Robinson to break the unspoken color line as the first modern African American Major League player. As both anticipate, this proves a major challenge for Robinson and his family as they endure unrelenting racist hostility on and off the field, from player and fan alike. As Jackie struggles against his nature to endure such abuse without complaint, he finds allies and hope where he least expects it.
