1991 — Amateur Pre-Professional

Tuck, an inquisitive and stubborn country boy, spends much of his summer vacation roaming the land around his home. His favorite spot, an abandoned barn, is one day taken over by Avy, an eccentric city woman. The two lock wits as they both try to oust the other from their private space. In a subtle turn of events, both realize their need for human companionship.
