Heartland America comes to terms with the end of an era - the once proud Great Plains town of Northfork is scheduled to disappear under water due to the construction of a new dam. Families are relocated, losing their homes forever. One resident, a frail young orphan boy, dreams of escaping with a band of eccentrics. Through the power of his imagination, the magic that surrounds him, and his unfailing trust and love, he is able to break away from the only home he has ever known.

It's 1955 and industries are booming as America undergoes a postwar metamorphosis. However, in the small town of Northfork, the townspeople are being evacuated because of the construction of a dam that will wash away their homes. A group of trench-coat-wearing government employees, hired to get rid of the proud few who remain, go about the business of destroying lives with efficiency. Meanwhile, a young orphan boy lies sick in bed, being cared for by a devoted priest. The boy's fever dreams include fantastic beings that might be angels... but are they simply in his head?
I suspect anyone who loves Americana will want to see this flick. As I do.
