Plot Summary
In the summer of 1959, 12-year-old Danny Himes (Gregory Smith) wants to prove his bravery by climbing a soon-to-be demolished radio tower. His competitors in the race to the top are bullies Andy (Seth Smith) and Tommy Sweeney (Oliver Hodges), who constantly mock Danny's father, Earl (David Strathairn), for not serving in World War II or Korea. After accidentally injuring his cranky neighbor, Chuck Langer (John Hurt), Danny begins to spend time with the old man, who helps him plan his climb.
