About

This is a high-octane superhero adventure about Jimmy, a 13-year-old boy who can move things with his mind. It’s a power he hopes can make him a rich and famous baseball star. So when his mom, an undocumented immigrant, lets him join Little League, Jimmy performs miracles. Pretty soon, people are talking about him as much as they are about the disappearances plaguing the community. But when his mother also goes missing, Jimmy must learn to use his powers for something else besides cosmic home runs. He teams up with two super-powered siblings who have been avoiding living in shelters to rescue his mom, the other “disappeareds,” and discover who is behind the kidnappings. 

This show is recommended for Ages 10+ as it includes topics related to social justice, mild swearing, and stage combat.
