An enterprising sports agent endeavors to import top-flight Indian cricket players into Major League Baseball.

JB Bernstein is an old-school sports agent on the edge of ruin, with an ever-growing slew of bigger and increasingly slick competitors seemingly destined to squeeze him out of his industry. Inspiration one night in the form of a televised Indian cricket match leads JB to set out to Mumbai to organize a competition searching for a "Million Dollar Arm", sending our protagonist on a sentimental journey as tens of thousands of Indians assemble for a chance to win a Major League Baseball contract and save their new friend's career.
