An honest movie, there is definitely a life changing theme to this. A fairly raw look at alcoholism and drug addiction and the impact on a young boy. Surprise ending.
Makes you really think and after watching, a piece of it stays with you!
After looking in a number of shops to no avail finally found it here at Mighty Ape. Bought for Mother who had thrashed the video copy she had – she absolutely loves this!! thanks Mighty Ape
Young Trevor McKinney, troubled by his mother's alcoholism and fears of his abusive but absent father, is caught up by an intriguing assignment from his new social studies teacher, Mr. Simonet. The assignment: think of something to change the world and put it into action. Trevor conjures the notion of paying a favor not back, but forward--repaying good deeds not withh payback, but with new good deeds done to three new people. Trevor's efforts to make good on his idea bring a revolution not only in the lives of himself, his mother and his physically and emotionally scarred teacher, but in those of an ever-widening circle of people completely unknown to him.
