In both baseball and in life, you want people you can count on when the game is on. During a challenging season, Cody (Jared Miller) learns he's not the best pitcher, or the best teammate. While Cody is facing challenging obstacles with the baseball team, his dad John (Kirk Cameron) is battling a viscous lobbyist plotting to destroy the family business.
Both Cody and John discover their battles are not meant to be fought on their own. They rely on friends, teammates, and most importantly, their faith and family, to accomplish their goals. The Mercy Rule is a family film that showcases the values of mercy, patience, sacrifice, and trusting God.
