Rock Haven

Synopsis: Brady (Sean Hoagland), who will shortly be going away to college, is a shy, introspective 18 year old, who moves to the coastal seaside town of Rock Haven with his overprotective, widowed mother Marty (Laura Jane Coles), who is setting up a Christian school nearby. He spends a lot of time on the beach, either reading the bible or staring at the waves crashing on shore, until he meets a neighbour's free- spirited visiting son, 19 year old Clifford (Owen Alabado). There is an instant attraction to each other, even though homosexuality conflicts with Brady's devoutly Christian beliefs. Brady has struggled with his feelings before and spends a lot of time showering, as if to scrub these feelings away. He seeks advice from his pastor (played by David Lewis, the director), who tries to reassure him by emphasising biblical texts which portray God as non-condemnatory love. Brady's mother, sensing that something is wrong, tries to fix him up with a nice Christian girl - who knows immediately th

The very first day I arrived at

Rock Haven,

I could sense right away that

it was an ideal spot...

to be one with God.

Mmm, listen to this:

Rock Haven owes its birth

to the 1906 earthquake.

Thousands of San Franciscans

sought refuge right here on

these beaches.

When school starts, Brady, I hope you'll

be as diligent

with your Bible studies as you are

with the trivia.

You didn't say grace, Mom.

Come, Lord Jesus,

be our guest.

and let these gifts

to us be blessed.


You working late again?

With all these regulations, you'd think

I was starting my own country.

It's hard to meet people around here.

I know, I know.

That's Angie.

Who's that?

Our neighbor, she

needs some boxes.

You've got to meet my son.

Brady, this is Angie's boy.



Let me get the boxes.

I've seen you around.

You must have me

confused with someone else.

There you go; there are plenty

more where these came from.

Thanks, I'll give 'em to my mom.

See you later.

What's wrong with you?

He's weird!



You dropped your towel.


Just for a minute.

How old are you?


You barely shave...



Gimme a break!

I'm nineteen.

It's not much difference.


Maybe not.

So, I hear it's pretty wild at

UC Berkeley.

Don't you like 'wild', Brady?

College has a way of changing that.

I don't think so.

Where are you going this fall?

Uhm, Summit.

The Bible college?

I'm glad you find it

so amusing.

What are you majoring in?


You think you're really smart,

don't you?

I was joking.

No, you weren't.

I still have some unpacking

I need to do.

Guess that's my cue.

I'm sorry if I offended you.

Reverend Brown...

non-Christians can be a

pain sometimes.

I hear you.

You know, Brady, there's a

whole world out there,

and we can't be insular.

I look older than thirteen, right?

How's it goin'?

Pretty good.

School'll be here before

we know it.

I can wait.


I know, you can hear

the waves.

But you see, that's a myth.

It's really just environmental noise.

It sounds different

because it's being reflected

off the interior of the shell.

I bet you I could teach you a few

things about astronomy too...

Brady, Brady, Brady...

Do you realize you're a

nerd sometimes?


Just checking!

I may need to get my stomach pumped.

Consider yourself officially initiated!

That second bowl of popcorn

was definitely a mistake!

But I'd do it again.

My mother's got a junk food gene...

I inherited it.

The only junk food in my house

is Granola.

It's a nice place.



there's something I need

to get out of the way,

but you have to promise not

to hold it against me.

What is it?


Oh Clifford!


Brace yourself!

Brady, this is my mom,

she's certifiable.

Hi Brady!

Be sure to thank you mother

for those boxes.

Hi, Mrs. ...

Just call me Angie.

You have such an interesting

field of energy.

Come on.

So, do you like your new home?

Yes maam, Angie.

What do you think of this?

I got it at an antique store

in Mo valley.

You know, Dad hates it when you

clutter up the house.

Sometimes my son's too

clever for his own good.

See you later.


Call your father tonight!

She's driving me crazy.

Where's your dad that you need

to call him?


He's never around.

My dad died.

Liver cancer.

I'm sorry.

I've a picture of him.


I can see the resemblance.

Thank you.

Wanna go for a walk?

Yeah, sure.

Back in Oberlin Park,

Brady had the biggest crush on

the next-door neighbor girl...
