Goofs

Young Brandon Breyer (Jackson A. Dunn) is shown in video flashbacks growing up with his adoptive parents. He looks to be about five or six years old when he's helping his father complete a construction project on the farm. Immediately after, the title card reads "Ten Years Later," when Brandon is said to be only twelve years old. Ten years after the last shot of him in the home video, he should be around fifteen or sixteen years old. See more »
