Sand Castle is an intimate and totally engaging yarn about an afternoon at the seashore. Two very young children, played by James and Laurie Cardwell, are left to their own devices by their neglectful parents. They construct a sand castle, then utilize their imaginations to "inhabit" their new fortress. As the afternoon creeps onward, the children have populated their sand castle with a host of colorful imaginary characters. Sand Castle is a marvelous, nostalgic way to spend 67 minutes on a lazy afternoon.
