In a last-ditch effort to save his career as a sports agent, J.B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm from TV's "Mad Men") concocts a scheme to find baseball's next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a Major League Baseball star, J.B. travels to India to produce a reality show competition called "Million Dollar Arm." With the help of a cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout (Arkin), he discovers two 18-year-old boys, played by played by Madhur Mittal ("Slumdog Millionaire") and Suraj Sharma ("Life of Pi"), who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball.
