Summary
  • A young altar boy questions his impoverished family's hard-line Catholic beliefs in the face of his father's weapons-plant job, his mother's diagnosis with cancer, and a peer's struggles against the pressures of growing up too fast
  • The boy lives with his family in a small, poverty stricken town in Vermont. His father works at a manufacturing plant, his mother is a homemaker, and his brother is about to enter high school. His family has gained enough financial stability to move out of the nearby trailer park, and his father's job at a weapons manufacturing plant appears safe. But then his mother is diagnosed with cancer, and everything changes. Taylor, a girl from the trailer park, represents everything his life isn't. Their connection develops as his mother's health deteriorates. -- adapted from jacket
