A beautiful, emotional, sweet, coming of age story.
16 March 2000 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

A con man mining promoter (John Schnieder, a drunk, has-been miner (Bruce Weitz), a lovely widow (Rebecca Jenkins) and her troubled son (Jonathon Jackson) head off into the mountains to find the long dead Ruby Silver mine. Along the way, they find themselves.

It is mostly a story about a son who misses his dad, being befriended by a terminal drunk. They help each other. Weitz & Jackson are wonderful. Also, as the mining promoter, John Schnieder gives a dark & troubling performance you'll never see on Dukes of Hazzard. Wish more TV movies were like this.
