What is the Film About?
The film is set in the family resort town of Ocean City, a 2-½ mile wide barrier island in southern New Jersey. The narrative is centered on a day in the life of little Anthony Heavens, a 9-year-old boy who wanders the streets and boardwalk of this small barrier island in search of himself, his father and his own place in the world.
Abandoned by his war-torn father and abused by his alcoholic mother. Anthony is reminded of his loss through his mother’s violence and from the people he meets on the streets of a city known to be “America’s Greatest Family Resort.” After discovering his father’s whereabouts, Anthony sets out to find him. Along the way he must face his fears, confront the neighborhood bully, and outwit a determined truant officer. Will little Anthony find what he is looking for? Or will he roam the streets, beaches, and boards of this small barrier island chasing shadows?
