Made for TV family melodrama
19 September 2000 | by (Newport News,VA) – See all my reviews

Somewhat pedestrian made for TV fare. A story of sibling rivalry at a waterfront crab fishing operation. Includes outdoor shots of downtown Hampton waterfront circa 1980. An in-offensive family melodrama. Not available on video at this time.
