He's hanging around town when he meets the 15-year-old Charley (Andrade), who's been sent to live with his resentful divorced father after Charley's mother dies. Eventually, the relationship becomes physical (there are no depictions of sex) and they're headed for trouble. 88m/C VHS, DVD . Brent Fellows, Giovanni Andrade, Nolan V.
