A young boy's (Cross) search for God in the aftermath of his grandfather's death leads him to … Rosie O'Donnell! O'Donnell is her usual wise, ebullient self as Sister Terry, the nun who opens the boy's eyes to Christianity, using a baseball metaphor. Leary and Delany play the parents in this hokey family movie that mistakes sentiment for honest emotion.
