Abstract:

Shirley Temple Wong sails from China to America with a heart full of dreams. Her new home is Brooklyn, New York.

It is 1947, and Jackie Robinson, star of the Brooklyn Dodgers, is everyone's hero. Jackie Robinson is proving that a black man, the grandson of a slave, can make a difference in America and for Shirley as well, on the ball field and off, America becomes the land of opportunity.
