Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

This independently produced black-and-white feature records the evolution of the central relationship in the protagonist's life. Pat is a white boy growing up in New Jersey in the 1930s, and his best buddy is Jake, who is black. As they grow older, various events of their lives punch holes into Pat's optimism and sense of faith in the future, but the final blow to his hopes is the death of his old friend Jake while on his way to a baseball tryout in the segregated South.
