Storyline

It is during the Cold War and all Americans have a view of Russians as one thing: bad people. A group of American boys discovers a Russian sailor washed up on the coast of Florida and decide to befriend him, assuming that he is friendly and will bring them no danger and thus go against the ideas of their parents, as well as the government.

[After a Russian naval book washes ashore]
Adam: All I know is, whoever lost it's probably dead now.
Jason: How do you know that?
Adam: Because man, in Russia if you screw up, they don't give you a second chance to explain yourself. They just kill you.
Jason: Sounds like my dad.

Surprisingly sweet
25 May 1999 | by (Selbyside - St. Paul, MN USA) – See all my reviews

Going into this movie you may be skeptical, but fear not. This movie is very entertaining, the characters are all pretty well played, and the whole message is worth seeing the movie. Leaf Phoenix and his brother River, where among the best juvenile actors of the 80's. Unfortunately, the movie is no longer available for purchase and is pretty hard to find.
