Summary

Although Dave (LeVar Burton) and his family are poor sharecroppers in the Deep South in the 1930's, this 15-year-olds problem is shared by teenagers today: he stands with one foot in adulthood and the other in childhood. Almost a man, yet still treated like a child, he struggles for an identity. There's one thing, one symbol of manhood, Dave thinks, that could guarantee him instant respect: a gun. Dave finds a way to buy a pistol and at last is ready to pull the trigger for the first time. Never again will they call him a boy. But as the gun overpowers the boy's body and he loses control, his young life forever changed.
