Heartwarming and inspired by a true story, "Chasing 3000" is set against the backdrop of Roberto Clemente's historic 1972 chase to get his 3000th hit. Mickey, 16, and a lifelong Pirates fan, resents his family's recent move to California, made to accommodate his brother Roger, who suffers from Muscular Dystrophy. Unhappy with his new surroundings, Mickey steals his mom's car and plans to race across the country to see Clemente's historic moment. His only problem: Roger wants to come along. The brothers set off and begin reconnecting as various obstacles push them closer. However, when the trip begins to take its toll on Roger's health, Mickey is forced to re-evaluate his priorities.
