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 captivating, honest and wonderfully composed film.
13 February 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Upon seeing this movie on television, I had not heard of it before. Now, I cannot believe that it was not more widely promoted and shared, as it is so beautiful and touching. Every aspect of the movie was so romantic and dreamy, yet being so raw and honest at the same time. I very much admire the two starring actors, who portrayed the complex and emotional characters so well, making it look so easy. I hope to see more of Douglas Spain sometime soon in movies, hopefully reaching Australian shores. To the film crew, very well done, and to potential viewers, a must see.
