Plot Summary
Young James (Cody Morgan) lives in a small seaside town with his mentally fragile mother Katie (Nastassja Kinski) and her abusive boyfriend Curt (Jason Cairns). Isolated at home and at school, James survives by virtue of his active imagination and rich fantasy life. One day he encounters Henry (Robert Forster), a retired psychiatrist planning to sail around the world. James wonders if he has finally found a father figure -- but life, in this case, does not have such a simple solution.
