Storyline

A chain-smoking trouble-maker enters a poetry contest at a local café, where he faces off against some heavy hitters including a handsome easy-going favorite. In the café, he makes friends with a blonde, who has relationship commitment problems and a political activist, who has another more personal secret. The film stays at the café and relies on its wordsmithing to keep the audience involved. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Great film making, good performances, worth seeing.
23 February 1999 | by cjaymesSee all my reviews

Great overall performance by Christopher Jaymes, (i.e. monologue about River Phoenix) worth seeing, good first time filmmaking by Mike Traina, all around worthwhile work, art direction, cinematography, acting, writing. Not necessarily a life changer but entertaining for the eyes and ears.
