Extract of a review from 1989. Stranded in the desert with an empty gas tank, Charlie Cox Frewer and his beautiful young daughter Joleen Barrymore go to a nearby trailer park to escape the blistering noonday heat. Chief suspect is sinister youngster Jimmy Reed Andras Jones , who tries to rape Barrymore by the local swimming hole. Those characters, and the way they interacted with each other, really made this movie much more watchable than I think it normally would have been. However, the faith aspect is a little obscure and not as explicit as it should be. While he's on a cross-country trip with his teenage daughter, Joleen, his car hits empty in a creepy town in Nevada.
