Overview

Perfection ruled in what appeared to be just another all American family. However, beneath the surface two brothers, raised in the same home, were fighting entirely different battles as adults. Or, were they?

Chris works hard to please the demands of his father, obtaining all the stereotypical attributes of success. He’s always pushing forward, looking for the next goal to achieve. On the surface, all looks well in the world he’s created. He’s successful in all he attempts…except love.

Lee, in turn, prides himself in being anything but what would please his father. Just as in childhood, he lets Chris claim the role of over-achiever. No, that’s not for Lee. He dares someone, anyone – his father – to accept him for who he is. Or, at least what he believes himself to be.

Women want them but learn to loathe them. The walls Chris and Lee have built are impossibly high. What is the secret to reaching these men? What is the secret to reaching most men?

Alone; both brothers crave to be alone. One, tired from the weight of public image. The other, tired from the weight of being judged. Both, ultimately feeling as though they never measure up, choose to distance themselves from the world.

Where does this come from, this feeling of less than good enough? “Get 25”, the family mantra drives one to step up and the other to step away. Groundballs – something most men remember from their childhoods – the goal is to never let one get past. In the Johnson household this rite of childhood passage became a test; a test to determine who is worthy and who is not.

Neither felt worthy. One would give up. Would the other reach him in time? Would they finally team up to take yet another groundball?
