The alternate title is ‘Boys Don’t Cry’.
Desperate times need desperate measures and we also get to see the other side of a person’s characteristics. In this case, we are in 1953
Two 18 year old boys try to make a better life for themselves and in the process discover their first love, the meaning of loyalty, friendship, courage and sacrifice. A chance encounter with the local gang brought the two a step closer towards their ambitions. But their plans had to take a step back when they encountered a band of street urchins.
This was the beginning of a new scheme, and it was not smooth sailing.
A good script and laudable effort from the two leads make this a gripping tale of human struggles and triumphs in the face of adversity.
A worthwhile watch.
