This film isnt really the best film Emilio has done. The film is bassicly about this boy who is having problems and he gets in trouble with the Police his dad sujests he stay in jail over night to teach him a lesson, and thats where the problems start. I dont want to give too much away. It isnt a bad film it has its moments. It is worth buying though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie 20 April 2014

Good story of "outsiders" intruding on family business.
Emilio Estevez is a very fine actor - Watch his movie
"The War at Home" to understand what it was like to
be a returning Vietnam combat veteran.
I would recommend to anyone who can "handle"
the language and emotional trauma...
