Pete, an eight-year-old Catholic boy growing up in the suburbs of Chicago in the mid-1970s, attends Catholic school, where as classes let out for the summer, he's admonished by a nun to follow the path of the Lord, and not that of the Devil.

"Stolen Summer" is the ultimate heart warmer. While it isn't a GREAT story, and it does have its cliches, it is good enough to hold somebody's attention. Kevin Pollock is surprisingly good, as are Aidan Quinn and Brian Dennehey. Overall, it was pretty enjoyable.
