Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This movie is based on the stage play Ice House by Bo Brinkman, who plays the lead in this film. In the story, Pake (Brinkman) has given up a well-paid job in the oil fields of Texas to try to break into the music business. Instead, he finds himself broke and dejected in a hotel room in L.A. He arranges a meeting with his old girlfriend Kay (Melissa Gilbert). She turns up with her current boyfriend and fiancee (Andreas Manolikakis), a Greek immigrant who hopes that by marrying her he will obtain permanent resident status in the U.S. His plans are jeopardized by Pake's efforts to convince Kay that she should go back to Texas with him and become his wife.
