Storyline

Justin Lo makes his feature film debut as Charlie Conrad, a 19-year-old history buff with the world on his shoulders. Following the death of his mother, Charlie sets aside his college plans to raise his highly imaginative 9-year-old brother Ben (Booboo Stewart). Isolated from his peers, Charlie accepts his responsibility yet secretly yearns for the freedom and romance associated with youth. Charlie suddenly gets his chance when he meets Jordan Rivers (Nick Bartzen), a charismatic drifter and fellow lost soul. The two of them hit it off immediately, and they soon embark on a tumultuous romance that gives Charlie a taste of the freedom he's been craving. Just as their relationship intensifies, however, Charlie's long-absent father, Doug (Barry Shay), returns to town with his own plans to take care of Ben. Caught in a struggle for Ben and eager to hold on to Jordan, Charlie must finally search his soul and make momentous decisions regarding the future of his family. Written by theconradboys@yahoo.com

a decent rental
8 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i totally agree with the reviewer's comments and the point was made regarding jason lo trying to wear too many hats in the making of this film. he did a decent job as director, writer, editor, etc... but his acting skills are absolutely not where they need to be. His film could have been much more powerful had he casted an actor other than himself in the lead. really a glaring mistake that almost ruins the film and thus relegates it to more of a straight-to-video offering. not deserving of the big silver screen. a shame really. i do hope in future efforts he hears this criticism and learns to cast a film properly. i believe he has some talent.
