Julie, a lonely fourteen year old girl, moves to Manzanita, an Oregon seaside town, from Los Angeles after her writer father, Robert, loses his job. Her family, including mother Kathryn and older sister Susan, has trouble adjusting to life in a small town. Julie parents struggle with her father's unemployment and her sister, Susan, finds solace in a summer fling with Tom, a not-to-bright local logger. The story opens with a 16th century Spanish sailors landing their launch on the beach of Manzanita. They carry a treasure chest up Neahkahnie Mountain, leading a manacled black slave. The treasure is buried and the slave killed and laid on top of the ground to "guard" the treasure and frighten the Indians away. Back in present day, Julie has a dramatic encounter with a large Roosevelt Elk on the beach. Its hooves uncover an old Spanish gold coin in the sand. The Elk becomes Julie's silent, watchful guide and protector as she becomes fascinated by the legend of the Tillamook Treasure and ... Written by

When Julie leaves for the mountain in the middle of a very bad rain storm to search for the gold in the stream, the outside shots show a very dark and rainy day. Immediately afterward, when her mother and father argue about her mother letting her go, her father angrily says, "You let her go out in this?" and gestures through the window outside, but it is clearly dry and sunny outside as seen through the window and the glass portion of the door.

Excellent, I saw it with my kids and we were part of every minute of this fast-pace adventure. Julie is a hero, not only for finding the treasure against all odds, yet also for fixing all the family troubles after all. Great acting in all the supporting parts as well. I'm thankful that there are still movies out there that can make you feel good and promote family values. An interesting combination of independent film making and "money on screen", the cave showdown is just phenomenal! A perfect Holiday Movie for the upcoming season. Take your kids and see it, I checked the website, it seems the movie is traveling the festival cycle quite a bit these days. Hope the DVD is out soon, too. RJ
