Mexican movie 108 costuras is a film about baseball, ‘the perfect sport’.

With a “universal, inspirational message,” 108 costuras is a family-oriented story about “friendship and the pursuit of one’s dreams.” It was co-written and produced by certified baseball fan Gastón Pavlovich and directed by Fernando Kalife.

The plot follows the story of two best friends, Mauricio and Reynaldo, who dreamt of being baseball stars since childhood, from their youth to adolescence and into adulthood.

Through a winning combination of God-given talent and hard work, the two come ever closer to achieving their dream, until a secret test the strength of their friendship, challenging the dream of playing professional baseball.

Audiences will recognize actors Adrian Gonzales, Kuno Becker, Angel Bichir, Fabiola Guajardo, Antonio de la Vega and former Miss Universe Ximena Navarrete.
