HISTORY & PREHISTORY

Amazing Grace and Chuck

Chuck is a twelve year-old boy in Livingston, Montana, and the star pitcher of his Little League team. One day he is taken to see a nearby missile silo and is so horrified that he decides to give up the most important thing in his life-baseball-as a protest against nuclear weapons.

Amazing Grace Smith is a basketball superstar for the Boston Celtics who hears about Chuck, goes to visit him, and decides to follow his example. He gives up his career and million-dollar contract. Other athletes and children follow until there is a full-fledged protest movement that even spreads to Russia. Both the President of the United States and the Russian leader are forced to negotiate with the rebels and with each other.

Amazing Grace and Chuck stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Gregory Peck, and William Petersen.
