Plot Summary

Tobe is about 16, living with her dad and younger brother in LA's San Fernando Valley. She invites a gas station attendant named Harlan to come to the beach with her and her friends. He's from South Dakota, wears a cowboy hat, talks country, and has been a ranch hand. They have a great time, his simple expressions seem like wisdom, he's attentive and polite, and even though he's more than twice her age, she wants to spend time with him. When her father objects, she rebels. Harlan, meanwhile, thinks she's his soul mate, and he starts making plans to get her away from her father. Worlds are set to collide, but which ones? Written by

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia There are at least two different versions of the film, with scenes either missing or added and different takes of key moments. The rarer 105-minute cut shortens many scenes but includes a missing scene between Harlan and Lonnie. Indeed, several of the escape scenes are different and in some cases reflect differently on Harlan's character. The sound mix is also different, with "Lean On Me Gently" as the credits song instead of Mazzy Star's "Look On Down From the Bridge." See more »
Goofs When Harlan and Lonnie are chased away from the campfire, Harlan's mustache is missing in the next scene as they enter the old west town. It is missing from the rest of the film, even though there has been no time for him to shave it off. See more »

Quotes Harlan: I've tried living down in the valley again, really tried this time. Walked up and down it looking for one open face, but most people I've meet hardly seem like human beings to me anymore.
