      Dellie's Run synopsis:

      When you’ve lived your entire life mired in muck and filth, dreams might be the only thing you can cling to. And inside her prison, lost in a sea of thousands of other girls, Delaware has one colossal dream that revolves around a simple white ball. Captivating her from the screen of the portable television owned by one of the prison workers, it is her only glimpse of the place she calls Outside. Her dream is baseball.

      Dellie’s Run is an empowering story of one girl chasing the elusive home run in the name of freedom—not just for her, but for the thousands she left behind. Along the way, she comes face to face with who she really is and why, according to the laws of physics, she’s basically destined to strike out. As Dellie sets off to defy these odds along with the companionship and scientific ingenuity of a curious young boy named Austin, she might just change the game for her kind—and for all of us on the Outside.
