| Well crafted story of a young man's coming of age in frontier America
Nick, a handicapped orphan from Chicago, is in search of his father in the American frontier of the early 20th century. Simon, another vagabond youth, befriends Nick and the two settle in a small town centered on the local logging operations. Nick gets a job with the local logging company and is smitten with a local girl while Simon hooks up with those that are stealing from the lumbermen.

When the two sides reach their inevitable confrontation, Nick must confront his demons.

This is a well told story that starts a bit slow but has some great moments. It's interesting to see how the `city boy' discovers the wonders of nature. The toothsome Christian Campell, Neve's brother does a credible job in the lead role but looks enough like his sister that anyone who is familiar with her work gets a sense of déjà vu throughout.
