Hailed as "the best baseball movie ever," Sugar, written and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, follows one young man's journey from a village in the Dominican Republic to a minor league baseball team in Iowa.

Boden and Fleck previously collaborated to create the indie film Half Nelson. They join Fresh Air to discuss their work on Sugar.
