Storyline

In the summer of 1947, a mysterious thirteen-year-old girl, accompanied by her mute mother, seemingly appears from nowhere. When two thirteen-year-old boys fall deeply in love with her, they find themselves on a collision course with one another that could not only destroy their friendship, but take the tiny town of Medda, Alabama with them. Written by Anonymous

A children's fable.
17 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

A children's fable. Lacking the harshness and showing to much love you would find in the real world. Where people say what they should and refrain from what they shouldn't say. No one ends up with their first choice of who they want to be with but end up with something almost as good and that is better than you would find except in a fable. In a small southern town in summer where bad things are easily made better if not good. It's a children's fable. It was a pleasant and almost to sweet a movie.
