The Winning Streak combines drama, baseball and a bit of comedy to craft a moving tale of a son’s search to meet and understand the father he never knew. Omar is a retired umpire set in a narrow, routine life whose habits are interrupted when he’s contacted by Ryland, the adult son he never even knew he had. Whether through coincidence or cosmic connection, on the same day that he’s contacted by Ryland, Omar’s favorite baseball team begins a winning streak. Omar doesn’t want the streak to end, and his son wants some answers – so as they spend time together in pursuit of their goals, their defenses are peeled away and unexpected truths are exposed.
