Storyline

Jerry Bines is trying to live down a past that includes killing a man (in self-defence), theft and an alcoholic, abusive father. He sees hope for redemption by providing life-giving bone marrow to his leukemia-stricken son. But time is running out because an escaped killer (Gary Percy Rils) is coming to town to exact revenge for ancient sins. And like the old buck in a backwoods tale he spins for his kid, Bines must stop running and turn to face his hunter. Written by Anonymous

my opinion of the film
30 November 1998 | by fishieSee all my reviews

This is an excellent movie with amazing actors. Callum Keith Rennie was formidable as Jerry Bines and portrayed the loving father so well that it was impossible not to feel as though you knew him. I was able to follow his life and his fears. Hate was struck in my heart for the evil social worker who cared only of herself and her work. She only was nice to Bines when she needed him, she ignored him when the situation was reversed. I am excessively happy that I own this film and that it is mine to watch whenever I please. It was excessively amazing and had me in the palm of its hand within moments of commencing. Very touching, it had me depressed and crying.
