Storyline

Two young boys are faced with their father's brutal abuse of their mother. One picks up a gun and their lives are forever changed. The shooter goes on to a life of crime, while the other is put in a foster home and goes on to be a successful college student. Fifteen years later, the two are re-united. The jailbird tells his brother he needs him to vouch for him at the parole office. Reluctantly agreeing to go, it isn't until the trip starts that the college man discovers that they are going to Florida and not to a local parole office in California. Forced to travel across country, the two develop a new awareness of each other and of their own life problems. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

This movie inspired me to reach into my self and be true.
14 January 1999 | by daisy-14See all my reviews

To me, the movie 12 Bucks painted a realistic portrait of what it is like for a child to live in a home of abuse and neglect. The "Harshness" in the beginning of the movie is a perfect way to show the audience the seriousness of the situation and understand the reactions of the children. I was very impressed with the actors (Scott Waugh and Sean Graham) I thought that the roles were well cast and was delighted at the way the characters evolved into finding their true selfs and each other. The show was a heart warming tale that I thought was very well written with twists and turns that were both humouous and intense. I would recommend this movie to anyone with a heart for forgiveness.
