Storyline

Nine-year-old Harwood isn't like other boys in 1977 Texas. After losing his brother in a tragic car crash, his mother takes up drinking, and Harwood finds comfort in his best friend -- fellow-nine-year-old Billy, the mentally-handicapped girl from down the street. Together, they watch the famous blimp fly overhead, and craft a "blimp trap" to catch it for their very own. They're teased for their special game, and their friendship, until one day, something miraculous happens. Written by Welling Films

mediocre at best
27 February 2018 | by carsonhechlerSee all my reviews

The plot is simple and the characters reactions and interactions with each other are abysmal. however the movie's biggest problems is that it just is not interesting. I caught myself falling asleep twice during the film and i have yet to find anyone who could stay awake. here is a list of things you can do other than watch this movie 1. watch paint dry 2. run barefoot on top of hot coals 3. talk to Scott Wiens 4. take an AP computer Apps course 5. Sit in a car with no A.C 6. Read Zamayatin's "We" 7. and last but not least work at All State.
