Movie Info

A drifter searching for stability returns to his small hometown and raises the suspicions of the locals when he forms a fixation on a childhood friend, and takes it upon himself to be a fitting role model for her troubled adolescent son. Appearing back in town seemingly out of nowhere, David Paxton (Pablo Schreiber) finds that his old friend Joan (Kellie Overbey) is a struggling single mother doing her best to raise her son teenage Ross Connor Paolo). But lately, without a male role model to look up to, Ross' behavior has grown increasingly erratic and unpredictable. Incredibly, David does succeed in breaking through the unruly teen's heavily fortified emotional barrier. Yet despite this success, the community still views David with suspicion, and Joan makes it perfectly clear that she has no interest in becoming romantically involved with him. Later, when concerned little league coach Bill Huston (Richard Bekins) takes it upon himself to shield Ross from David's influence, the stage is set for a shocking confrontation.
