- 1 hr 34 min
Feeling guilty because Sam Gillen (Jean-Claude Van Damme) has taken the fall for the accidental murder of a bank guard during a robbery that went very bad, Billy (Anthony Starke) initiates a prison break and springs him. The escape attempt does not go as smoothly as it should and Billy ends up losing his life in the process. Sam is now on his own, with nowhere to turn, he heads for the woods to lie low for a while. His first night takes Sam to the home of Clydie Anderson, (Rosanna Arquette) looking for some seasonings for the piece of meat he plans on cooking. A trip that almost gets him caught by her son Mike. When Sam returns the salt, Mike thinks that he is an extraterrestrial being and follows him to his campsite to introduce himself. Mike returns to the campsite the next morning, with his sister Bree, where they interrupt him taking a swim. Sam overhears a conversation between Clydie and the local sheriff, that she is being pressured to sell her property by a local land developer. Sam interrupts an attempt by some men trying to send Clydie a message and is invited by her to stay in her barn for a few days, an offer that Sam could not refuse. Sam offers Clydie to buy her deceased husband's motorcycle, to which she agrees, provided he pay her $300.00. The longer Sam remains on the property, the more he gets attached to the family. Mike begins to think of Sam as the father he lost, as Sam proceeds to fill that void. Sheriff Cole is becoming curious about Sam and decides to take matters into his own hands, but not before Clydie invites Sam to sleep in her bed. Robert Harmon directs this romantic drama, with supporting roles by Ted Levine as Mr. Dunston, Edward Blatchford as Sheriff Lonnie Cole and Joss Ackland as Franklin Hale.
