Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Franco is like a lot of teens who get into trouble: he has too much energy, too many dreams, and no real relationships. In this brisk melodrama, he has gotten into trouble with the authorities in Copenhagen, who have shipped him off to a foster home in the marshlands of Jutland, near the German border. There, he is consigned to the easygoing supervision of a border patrolman who isn't really concerned if the occasional illegal immigrant escapes his attentions. In addition, he gets to know the man's daughter, who keeps sheep, plays the trombone, and dreams of traveling in America. Before long, the two of them have fallen in love, and a series of adventures and misadventures befall them, resulting in their (temporary) separation.
