Storyline

10-year-old Kathy prefers pigtails to curls and runs away for the day to avoid a hair appointment. While she's off having adventures with her best pal Jeeter, her parents clash over how to handle the situation. Kathy's mother worries that her daughter doesn't "fit in" while her father believes she's "just an individual" and should be allowed to grow up at her own pace. At the end of the day, Kathy must return home to face the inevitable. Written by Beth Brickell <luminousfilms@earthlink.net>

Billy Joe Jackson-Today
16 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here I am Jerry Allen Franks,aka Billy Joe Jackson almost 24 yrs. later, looking back into my past. Even though this was my only film I can still remember my cast mates and the joy we shared during this film. My twin brother and I made this movie when we were only 11 years old, but still today remember it as yesterday. The events happening after doing our rolls and the drive home. The talkative gang of that old car can still be heard today. Still single and living in Greenwood, SC I often reflect back to my young and the way this movie taught me things about life.
