Mary: I don't know why you're willing to do this.
Joey Callaghan: Because where you come from, you know, Freedom is not a tune you whistle, you know. But believe me ah, when I say this to you, that once you learn that tune, there's nobody, not anybody, that can take that away from you. Does that make sense?

Caught it on Starz Encore
24 July 2009 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Everyone looking for the film you can catch it on Starz Encore Drama. I get DirecTV so not sure which channel you might find it on cable, but Starz Encore is a good bet. Cute film. What is it about 80s film culture that makes you warm and fuzzy inside? Also, I remember the locations shot around Toronto, Canada. Very nostalgic because these places are much different now, and a few buildings and stores no longer exist. I believe this was a failed TV pilot. There are a few other Canadian based TV shows I have been searching for that were filmed around this time (early 80s). Night Heat, Friday the 13th, and War of Worlds.
