Henry is a loner, living with his overprotective mother in a small Southern town called Battlecreek. Henry has a rare sun disease and must avoid sunlight. He lives his life at night -- hanging out at the diner, working the night shift at the gas station and swimming in the creek under the moonlight. Henry doesn't know who he is or what he wants, until he meets Alison. When Alison's car breaks down in Battlecreek, she answers the "help wanted" sign at the diner to pay for the repair. Henry is immediately drawn to the mysterious girl. Alison shows Henry that he can live a life he thought impossible, even at the cost of losing his mom and freeing him from his past.
This film is mediocre in every way, and the only element it excelled at is pushing and exploiting stereotypes and clichés about disability. Anti-social, emotionally undeveloped and insecure, desperate, shut in, angry, all packed into the lead character. I am not surprised it has had to be re-edited over and over, for years. Really it is disgusting. The makers ought to be ashamed.
The two twists and the end (I wont spoil them) are truly groan worth and patently contrived to try and button up the story.
