An 11-year old strikes up a friendship with the boy next door who's constantly picked on because he contracted AIDS through a transfusion. When they read that a doctor in New Orleans has discovered a cure for the disease, the two of them head down the Mississippi on a raft. It's a touching story, with plenty of beautiful scenery. And the two young actors, Joe Mazzello and Brad Renfro do an absolutely amazing job.
