Narrator Blair Brown shows her versatility in this story of a mother and teenaged daughter who meet new challenges and explore new love. Young Mickey is growing apart from her best friend and finds a new companion in the school's outcast, Shane. Mother Neve experiences the ups and downs of a new relationship with park ranger Tim O'Casey, who is dealing with the grief of losing a son. Brown portrays the teens with the enthusiasm and overconfidence of their years as they try to be taken seriously by the adults. Brown's talent is highlighted most as she portrays the sympathetic O'Casey, especially as he lashes out in anger and tries to guard his emotions concerning his late son and estranged father.
