About the film:
Jerry, a backwoodsman and misunderstood loner, resides in a cabin outside a small Vermont town.  When his shy "courting" attempts fail with the local girls he decides to visit the town brothel where his life is turned upside down.  Song, an illegal Chinese immigrant, has been forced into prostitution who endures continual abuse by her less than gentlemanly visitors.  Jerry finds her to be an unwilling partner and at her wits end.  Song breaks into a rage, Jerry panics and seeks out the Madam to get his money back.  The Madam refuses the refund, a skirmish develops, she is accidentally killed and Jerry flees.  The following day Jerry finds Song hiding in the woods, unaware the Madam is dead and fearing retribution.  Jerry takes Song in and together they learn about each other, about the eternal conflict between man and woman, about American culture, Chinese culture, and about right versus wrong.

The cast:  Rusty DeWees, Linda Shing, George Woodard.
