"If you build it, he will come."
That's the ethereal message that inspires Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) to build a baseball diamond in the middle of his cornfield. At first, "he" seems to be the ghost of disgraced ballplayer Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta), who materializes on the field and plays a few games with the awestruck Ray.
But as the weeks go by and Ray receives more messages from the whispering voice, he begins to realize that his ballfield has been divinely ordained to give second chances to those who need them most.
