When Ty's mother dies, he leaves Barstow for the coast, where his mother grew up and where the beach gives him solace. He gets work, makes friends with some local guys, and falls for Sandy, the sister of one of them. Without warning, Ty's hard-edged father, his profane uncle, and his two low-life half-brothers show up, needing a place to hide from the cops for awhile. Ty wants them gone, but his stubborn and ornery family checks into the local motel. Things get worse when the low-life brothers sexually assault Sandy. Her brother and his pals reply with fists. Out come guns and knives, and a showdown in the sand is guaranteed. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

To that Pound of Sand OR
16 November 2009 | by wsdixonSee all my reviews

Emilio Estevez and Leary, etc, are B-List celebs? Were you high when you went on that rant?

You must be incredibly young, because even somebody my age, who would also be young, is old enough to realize the cache of many of the actors you put down, especially Estevez! HE chose to take a 10 year hiatus from big budget productions because he'd rather write and direct, but that was his choice. He's transcended the whole A-list/B-list definition anyway. Some celebrities do reach that point where they can be out of public view and still be a big enough name in the business. PLus, his list of friends, or people only someone as ignorant as you could pigeon-hole as A-listers, are in fact A-listers. All of them. Go watch Bobby, a film he wrote. He employed all of his BIG NAME friends as actors in that film, dip$hit.
