Set against the backdrop of our national pastime, Quick Feet, Soft Hands follows a couple pursuing the American Dream.

Greta Gerwig, in one of her first roles, stars as Lisa, a young woman whose hopes of moving up are tied to Jim, a minor league baseball player. As Jim falls deeper into a batting slump, the couple must cope with the day-to-day realities of being young and poor. And they must confront the prospect that they may never make it to the big leagues.
