A moving, coming-of-age drama exploring the nature of love and human compassion. Evan, a young adult with Down syndrome, lives with his mother in a poor, working-class town. When he unexpectedly inherits a large sum of money, he decides to use it to help out his friend and high school crush, Candy, a single mother deeply in-debt and facing eviction. The two form an unlikely relationship, and everything seems to be falling into place, until Candy's volatile ex-boyfriend, Russ interferes.

I loved the views of the leaves in the stream, changing speed and color to match life's flow - for that matter the view of the country was pretty. Serious material -- not only about a young adult with Downs Syndrome - in my eyes more about abuse and what it does to a person -- specifically the young woman who has been treated so poorly and used most of her life that she doesn't recognize an angel in front of her. Recommended for those who like a good drama -- wonderful message about valuable human qualities versus external appearance and manipulative intelligence.
