Storyline

Lincoln, who's not yet 18, leads a straight life most of the time: he has a girl friend, goes to dances, jokes with guys. But he also has a secret life, in which he's drawn to dark places where he has sex with men he doesn't know. One night, while visiting a gay video arcade, he connects with John, a Vietnamese-born gay man, in his 20s probably, whose father was an African-American US soldier. John invites Lincoln to spend some carefree time with him, and Lincoln takes him to his father's boat. John then convinces Lincoln to take the boat into the Mississippi delta, where setting off some fireworks out of season precipitates betrayal and revenge. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Very disappointing
15 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had waited for this movie to come out on DVD for 10 years after missing it at the Tampa Gay Film Festival in 1996. What a disappointment. The summary notes are very misleading. This is a very dark movie with no plot and no character development. Writing, film quality, audio, acting and especially directing were simply horrible. I can see why none of the actors never did any other work...perhaps they would have performed better had they been given something remotely decent to work with. By the end of the film was I was yelling at myself for wasting 85 minutes of my life. This movie failed to provide any emotional attachment to any of the characters, whether good or bad. Do not waste your time with this movie.
