Storyline

Despite what he says, Adam is not "fine". The summer before freshman year should be a time full of possibilities, but Adam struggles with family tragedy, everyday teenage growing pains, and the very real threat of high school hazing. Fortunately, Adam finds allies (some likely, some unlikely) who help him repair his heartache as well as his ailing relationship with his father. Set in a small, Southern California beach town, Adam discovers the inner strength one can find with the support of a community. His story is proof of the notion that with the help of family and friends, you can always find your way back home. Written by Anonymous

Breakthrough Performance
5 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Just saw this at the Phoenix Film Festival where it won the prize for Best Breakthrough Performance. It was by the 14 year old star of this film who plays Adam. He is an amazing talent and everyone should expect to see great things from him in the future. The plot was a little predictable and the ending was a dissapointment. Another one of those the kid ain't all right kind of sagas film fests love. Good direction, decent editing. Cinematography was only so-so. All the acting is great, though. Esp by Lousie "Nurse Ratched" Flecher. Kevin Sorbo also did a decent job with his small role. Made me forget all about "Hercules," barely. If this hits a festival near you, see it! And that's all there is to it.
