Storyline

This is the tale of two young lovers who flee from the miseries of their homelife to make it on there own. Nineteen year old Chris, rejected by his family, hopes to go to college and into forestry once he's out of the Army Reserves. Holly, who is fourteen, lives with her divorced, overprotective mother and her brother. She runs with an older crowd and soon attaches herself to Chris. Holly's mother is dead set against Chris because of his age, and she and Holly are at odd's over him. When she forbids them to see one another, and boots Chris out of her yard, Holly convinces a doubtful Chris to run off to the promises of California. The Trip West, with the couple penniless, avoiding the law, a lecherous trucker and other routine incidents, shows them that life will not be easy. Once in southern California there are no answers except for a fortuitous offer from the Hollywood Outreach Program, which they pass up. Bad luck hits hard, but Chris can't go home because the army has declared him... Written by Rachelle Stewart

a good dose of reality
19 January 2003 | by (Anderson, IN) – See all my reviews

In response to Guil Fisher's opinion listed here, maybe some teens watching this show need the good dose of reality that is displayed in this film. It may prevent some (who watch it) from running away and thinking that they can make it on their own. You wouldn't want the producers of this show to project an image that they can make it on their own and be fine, would you? That doesn't make much sense because it's not realistic. It's a rough world out there, especially for teens with no jobs who are living on their own.

Okay, just wanted to give my point of view. Thanks for listening :)
