SECRET LIFE OF BALLS, THE is in the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival - it may not be a regular, endorsed title
The script is a clever spin on the evils of stealing through the genre of fantasy adventure. The characters, in this case balls of all known sports, like ghosts, become visible and heard by the hero Willie, who is truthful, caring and clever. They form an unlikely team to defeat the burly Russian thieves who steal the sports balls, insert drones and manipulate them to win events. But these balls have energy and their communities which are being torn apart. Willie becomes their hero with the help of his friends and a very aware Grandma Maes. So good hearts prevail; evil doers are captured; new friendships made, if just for that magic moment in time.

I give this screenplay 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18, plus adults, Reviewed by Juror #11.
