The local population of a small Vancouver Island town suffers from an unemployment problem due to a lengthy economic recession. Smith plays a young man confused by the frustrations of both his unemployed father and his own hopes. Schleisser is a West German photojournnalist who arrives

and engages in an affair with Smith. When Smith is caught committing vandalism, he is arrested and assigned to do compulsory work for the community. An often-charming, never-lagging film, this is an accurate portrait of the day-to-day life of a Canadian province town. Director Wilkinson had

previously shot a documentary, THE LITTLE TOWN THAT DID, in the same area and shows a good feel for the people there, presenting believable characters and relationships. The movie is well filmed in a 16mm, semidocumentary style that heightens its realism.
