Incommon With Mike Leonard

Acceptance

Season 1, Episode 2 of 4

Life is about accepting ourselves, unfamiliar cultures, different races, new ideas, change. But can a tony suburb on Chicago's north shore accept the unconventionality of grown men playing wiffle ball in Mike's front yard every Sunday -- in a makeshift ballpark he created himself? Is this crazy? Is this acceptable among the well-manicured lawns of a well-traveled street? What about accepting challenges and opportunities? INCOMMON visits Uganda, Africa for perspective on how one aspiring filmmaker confronts cultural, technological and geographic obstacles. Winnetka to Uganda to Israel -- Mike connects the journey across continents with the common ground of sports, friendship, creativity and play! Arab and Israeli children bond as teammates in a sports camp in Israel set amidst swirling sectarian violence just outside their oasis of peace.
