By D.W. Gregory.

Cast: 2m., 7w. (expandable.) Fayette County, Pennsylvania, 1952: 16-year-old Neely Cole struggles in the shadow of his much-admired older brother Aidan, who is off fighting a distant enemy in Korea. The closure of a factory has thrown the community into turmoil, but for Neely and his friends, Sara and Mary Lee, the bigger question is when Aidan will finally pop the question to his long-time girlfriend Regina Miller. Neely meanwhile has agreed to play go-between for Aidan and a different girl, pretty but aloof Emily Abbott, daughter of a wealthy merchant. It's an assignment Neely first considers a game that will relieve his boredom. As Emily's attachment to Aidan grows, however, Neely finds himself struggling with strange feelings of his own—the dull ache of a nagging conscience and an unspoken desire to claim Emily for himself. Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 65 minutes.
