moving story of a young mans struggle to find himself.
10 December 2003 | by cdeschaSee all my reviews

I was able to see this movie on the love channel Comcast NJ on Dec 10, 2003 and I felt it was a moving story of a man who tries to find a starting point in his life by trying to find out his past. He has no memory of why he was put into an institution. I think Beau Bridges did a superb job of portraying a confused young man trying to piece his life together.
