Storyline

Jeremy Rollins is a young man with a very strange affliction. He has the uncanny and uncontrollable ability to deflect any physical attack and its associated pain and injury to the attacker's closest relationship. Born with this condition, Jeremy's mother had the foresight to home school him and limit his contact to the outside world. She feared that if he were ever discovered, men in white coats would conscript and subject him to unspeakable experiments. This upbringing makes him awkward and childlike, and upon the unexpected passing of his mother, Jeremy is forced to confront a corrupt town and face the realities of a harsh society and the cruelties of its people. He encounters a variety of unsavory town folk - a dominating bully who is the sheriff's son, the sheriff who is in the pocket of a corrupt banker, a gold-digging temptress and a reverend who has lost his way. But a local waitress, Jess, who sees something very special in Jeremy, befriends him. Through a series of physical ...

A small town boy with a strange gift
25 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

I really don't know why so many people dislike this movie. It was perfectly acted and the actors where great for their roles. This movie exploits all bad behavior people do on basic and some more. The corruption and the things that we are willing to sacrifice to help others who don't deserve it for better off all. This movie even if its a wishful dream, is done nicely and touch u deep inside. I recommend to people who have at least some good in them to watch this. Its B movie, but a good one. Low budget used spot on.
