1. Foul Territory by Craig Wright
Director: Nina Meier Bradlin
Synopsis: Owen and Ruth are watching a Yankees game. Ruth is an unreservedly loud and passionate fan who swears a blue streak and believes her team will win, even against the odds. Owen is clearly pessimistic, not just about the game, but also about Ruth's recent decision to leave her husband. As soon as Owen mentions the topic, a baseball comes his way and hits him smack on the head. Soon, another ball hits his nose, which starts to bleed profusely. He tells Ruth about countless other balls that have hit him in the past. When yet another ball comes flying his way, Ruth encourages him to try to catch the ball, but Owen explains that there is no point. It seems to be his fate to be hit in the head with every ball that comes his way. Will he catch it?
