Storyline

The movie Boys Town (1938) inspires mestizo foundling Ed to start looking for his parents. As the tribal stories all contradict, he sets out on a quest for his roots, helped by the invisible Ancient spirit of chief One-Who-Waits, who appeared in his sleep, according to Joel an imaginary friend. Joel can nor more diagnose a medically sensible cause for Chris Stevens sudden loss of voice, which he attributes to the passing-by of a dream-girl. Meanwhile Holling must stand-in as radio DJ.
