Monks at Bat
Monks at Bat celebrates the unlikely bond that has developed between
a group of Buddhist monks and nuns and a close-knit community of
lobster fishermen in a picturesque Cape Breton town.
Every summer, the fishermen compete in a softball game against Gampo

equipment, the monks are perennial underdogs... with big hopes.
