Storyline

Set in 1969, a twelve-year-old grows up in Key West with his mother, who is paying the bills by stripping at the local topless bar. The boy finds out about her activities and tries to convince her to stop, to no avail. A local restaurant owner hires him to collect fish from a boat out in the bay, and the boy discovers that the restaurant owner is using the fish to bring drugs in to shore. He steals one load and goes about selling it so his mother can afford to quit her job. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

I am drawn to this Movie
29 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 11 in the summer of 1969 and our family was camping near Cape Canaveral during the moonwalk. We sat outside near the bathhouse watching the moonwalk on a portable b&w TV. So this movie takes me back to that time. When I go to Key West now, I can relate to this movie. The place I stay in Key West is just down the street from Eden House. I get this weird but good feeling every time I walk past Eden House, half expecting Goldie or David to come popping out the door. Yes I am drawn to this movie. It takes me back to my youth and lets me relive it just a bit each time I watch it. Despite all of the tourists, Key West is still a simple fun place to visit and you can walk all over the Island, and the Key Lime Pie ain't bad either. This film may not be a classic but my childhood was. And this movie helps me relive it.
