“Field of Dreams” is a dramatic fantasy. The movie is adapted from the novel by W.P. Kinsella. Farmer, Ray Kinsella is walking through his cornfield one day when he hears a disembodied voice that whispers “If you build, he will come.” Ray is perplexed and talks it over with his wife, Annie, who is quite skeptical. Ray dreams of a baseball field and decides that the voice was telling him to construct a baseball diamond in his corn field. One morning Ray discovers that “Shoeless” Joe Jackson has found his way from the cornfield to his baseball field. Joe doesn’t understand what is happening but is thrilled to find a place to play and invites others to join him the next day. The Kinsella's are having financial problems. They are at risk of losing their farm. While Ray is stressing over the situation he hears the voice say “ease his pain”. Ray feels like he needs to visit reclusive author Terrance Mann, whose books were singled out for censorship at a local PTA meeting. Mann had childhood dreams of playing for the Dodgers but was able to live his dream. Ray finds Mann and convinces him to return with him to Iowa. Ray and Terrance see a vision on a scoreboard at Fenway that identifies the lifetime statistics of Archibald “Moonlight” Graham. Graham is a former player that only played in one game and never got to bat. They travel to Graham’s hometown only to find out that he lived his life as a town doctor and has passed away. Travelling back to Iowa, Ray and Terrance pick up a hitchhiker named, Archie Graham. They realize that they are to take Archie to live out his dream. The baseball field is alive with multiple hall of fame players and everyone gets a solution to their problems. Ray realizes that the voice was telling him to reconcile with his estranged father on the diamond.
