Shimmer (1993) American Playhouse


Spacy Callahan has two problems. In the first place, he’s a young teen, which is difficult enough. In the second place, he has been placed “for his own good” in an Iowa juvenile facility which has more than a passing resemblance to a military prison. If a boy breaks one of the innumerable rules of the place, they get placed in a situation where the will probably be sexually molested by their jailer Mr. Kibby, while he quotes Bible verses at them. He has a friend, though, a boy named Gary and together they make the best of things. That is, until it becomes clear that a clueless young inmate could make things really difficult for them – really difficult.
