A farm boy (Matt Dillon, The Outsiders) and a banker's daughter (Cindy Fisher, Hide in Plain Sight) fall in love in a small Texas town in 1949, bringing their opposing backgrounds to light.
Teen superstar Matt Dillon (The Outsiders, My Bodyguard) stars in this tender tale of love's first promise... and its enduring strength.
Dillon plays Jack Duncan, an athletic, hardworking boy from the small town of Noble, Texas. Jack is happy just enjoying himself with the local boys, until he meets Ginny Peterson (Cindy Fisher, Hide in Plain Sight, The Blues Brothers), the towns wealthiest young lady. Despite their obviously different backgrounds, Jack and Ginny fall desperately in love.
Even though their parents have forbidden them to meet, Jack and Ginny sneak out, and finally elope, hoping to find happiness far from their hometown. But theirs is a love that falls prey to the sins of their elders - as the intrigue of two families reaches out an angry hand to its innocent victim in this touching, tragic story of youth, love and hope.
