A beautifully acted film full to the brim with the most amazing ensemble cast. Dermot Mulroney shines as King, the father-figure to a rag-tag, disparate group of street kids who have formed their own surrogate-family. Having escaped from unpleasant and unsatisfactory homes, these kids spend their time together on the streets of hollywood. King strives to protect them from the dangers which chase them - from drugs and theft to guns and prostitution- whilst casting about for some means of escape. He meets his possible salvation in Heather (Lara Flynn Boyle), a beautiful 17 yr old who has fled an abusive home and is introduced into the group by Brenda (a young Ricki Lake). King falls in love with Heather, but their happiness has many road-blocks.
This is a gritty,tragic, yet oddly beautiful drama which will touch your soul.
