Storyline

In Jefferson Creek, North Carolina, the colors of autumn signal Friday night lights, and high-school quarterback Danny Shepherd is the main event. He and his friends, Shane and Taz, live for the present, where good-natured fun often turns into trouble. A simple-minded sketch artist named Aaron looks up to Danny and the others as his only friends. After his mother is hospitalized by her abusive husband, Aaron commits a desperate act he cannot fully grasp: the murder of his own father. The boys vow to protect Aaron by covering up the evidence, but one bad choice gives dark rise to another. As suspicion mounts and Danny struggles to hold on to a promising future, the four friends face the hardest test of their young lives--one that asks for the meaning of true loyalty. Written by JR

How far will you go to protect a friend?
26 January 2002 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

Aaron, Danny, Taz and Shane are small-town boyhood friends. Shane is slightly older and has been in trouble with the law, Taz and Danny are high school seniors and both are football players. Danny even has prospects of a college scholarship. Aaron makes up the fourth of their quartet and although slow-witted and the victim of domestic abuse has real talent as a sketch artist.

When Aaron reacts with violence to his father's domestic abuse, his friends are faced with the question `How far will you go to protect a friend'. The boys make their decisions but through ill-chance and bad-decisions events quickly spiral out of control and no-ones life is going to be as it was.

Overall this film was watchable and the plot moved along well. All of the main characters were believable and you could easily empathize with the boys, however it suffered in that none of the characters were fully developed and the ending was, at best, ambiguous.
