Storyline

A teen girl enjoying a rare free weekend from her religious parents is suddenly confronted by a young Mexican intruder, who randomly chose her house to hide out. Seems he was badly beaten by two local thugs in a racially motivated attack and he took his revenge on the two. This put him on the run from the local bigoted sheriff. Slowly the two reveal their emotional baggage and become genuinely attracted to one another. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

A moving, beautiful film
27 June 2000 | by (Nashville) – See all my reviews

I was given the opportunity to view this film at the Nashville Independent Film Festival and it blew me away. The actors embodied the roles with such emotion. I was mesmerized. It brought me to tears several times. Particularly in Lolly Ann's description of her parents' lack of love for her and their disapproval of her, I was moved nearly to sobs. I felt the religous demands of her parents were realistically played out. That is not often the case in films where that concept is often dealt with cartoonishly. Lolly Ann is obviously a wounded girl who is only beginning to realize the extent of her hurt. The tender romance that develops also rings true. This film stayed with me long after I left the theater. In addition, the editing, cinemetography and the use of a dissolve-to-white technique made the film seem almost magical. I was able to talk with Director Don Most for quite some time after the film and I was amazed at the care and attention he put into this film. He is a talented director. I truly hope he gets the wider distribution he seeks for it, though I doubt the average viewer would appreciate the gem that it is.
