Ambitious land developers descend on a tiny Florida coastline community, inhabited mostly by local yokels and elderly African Americans. Many of them don't want to see their homes and businesses sacrificed in the name of "progress" (a.k.a. condos, hotels, strip malls, and so on). But the city council appears to be all too willing to let them come in and develop the land. In addition, one weary hotel owner is thinking about giving in and selling. Meanwhile, one prominent African American athlete suddenly becomes interested in buying out his aging neighbors. So now that the wheels of progress appear to be in motion, it seems that a minor miracle is the only thing that can stop it. Written by

Early in the film when Francine is talking with one of the developers, they pass a sign in the foreground that says "Amelia Island", the filming location, instead of the film's fictional location, Plantation Island. See more »
This could have been a great film. It could have been a great character study. Instead it tries to handle too many characters and subplots and not really delving into any one too deeply. In the end I really didn't care about any of the characters because I didn't really know any of them that well.
The writing was good. It would have been better to write about just a few of the characters rather than to try and write about the entire population of Florida.
Production values were excellant.
Most of the actors were good.
Bottom line: Only go to see this movie if you don't have anything else planned.
