Storyline

Harley is a 'troubled teen' from L.A. who is arrested. A progressive social worker has Harley sent to Texas to live with the Nortons, an open-minded, heartful Christian family, and spend two months on their ranch. Surrounded by a town full of doddering hicks, Harley takes on ranch chores, learns to ride horses, and finds love in a local girl while the Nortons try to bring him into the fold. Eventually Harley chooses to release his pain in exchange for a return to faith, culminating in his calling for God's help to save the life of the burglar who framed him.

3 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

I liked this movie the first time I saw it, when it was called "Dakota" another rehash of the same story... It was a little different but not enough to make me happy.

All in All this movie wasn't his best work, but then again what was? IMHO, it would have to be the 2 young guns and the movie The First Power. Lou Diamond Phillips is a good co-star, Not a great star per-say, but now That he has done some television work hes getting better.

I just hope no one takes these comments to heart, they are just opinions not facts, And I respect Mr. Phillips for his work. Except of course his movie "Shadow of the Wolf".
