Fleeing their homeland, three Cuban baseball players arrive in Costa Rica to showcase their skills for pro scouts. But when one of them is cut by their ruthless agent and evicted from the apartment, the others must decide if they can still trust the agent or if they should take the dangerous migrant trail north to the United States. Told with rawness and urgency, THE LAST OUT tells the very human story of people caught between countries who want nothing more than to make a better life for their families. Set against the backdrop of the dangerous Central American migrant trail, the film offers a rare window into the dark side of professional sports.
