Storyline

Follows the lives of three unrelated teenagers as they run away from their respective homes, each for different reasons. Arriving in Chicago, one tries to make good with his life only to find it a little more difficult than he had imagined, one falls in with "the rock and roll set" and comes to a violent end, and one gets mixed up with prostitutes, but comes good in the end. Shows things from both the parents side and the kids side. The underlying story is that you can't solve your problems on the road if you can't solve them at home. Written by Kevin Steinhauer {K.Steinhauer@BoM.GOV.AU}

Good Cautionary Tale
10 February 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This is a less pretentious "Rebel Without a Cause". It is lighter, more pleasant and digestible. Coughlin shines, and he also wrote the charming title song, sung by the sadly forgotten Arthur Prysock. It is highly ironic, that whereas Dreyfuss was a bit player and Coughlin the lead, five years later, the roles were reversed on the memorable Gunsmoke episode "This Golden Land" where Coughlin plays a bit part and Dreyfuss gets a chance to shine. This film is preachy, but in a respectful and loving manner. And it has an artistic dimension.
