A group of street kids find that the only way to make it through the day is to hold onto their dreams while their reality is eating out of dumpsters, turning tricks and squatting in abandoned buildings.
What a dichotomy! Directed by Alan Smithee but written by Tom Fontana. Alan Smithee is the pseudonym for Directors who have asked to have their names removed from the Directing Credits of films. Alan Smithee films have usually have a noticeable, ah, bouquet about them.
However, Tom Fontana, is a well respected name for creating solid TV series and for his craft in writing.
Take a chance on this film. It is different. Some very solid performances by Richard Dean Anderson, Bert Young and Skip Sudduth (of Third Watch fame).
Also, a correction on the synopsis of the film by a previous reviewer. The movie concerns a New York City Fire Company, and the drama revolves around of the firemen being shot by a sniper.
