WHEN FOREVER'S OVER
From 1965 to 1968, the world was turning upside down. The fabric of America was changing as the post-war baby-boomers began coming of age demanding a place in society, questioning authority and the beliefs of their parents became the norm.
The confusion of the '60s only compounded the confusion felt by a group of young teens growing up in a small town in the mountains of East Tennessee. It was a time when they were learning how to be a part of their small corner of the world, when they were beginning to see the opposite sex in a whole new way, and when they were looking for something stable in their lives. It was a time when they learned that words actually can hurt, and true friendship lasts forever.
WHEN FOREVER'S OVER is a trip back in time. Back to the 'Good Old Days' when things were supposed to be simple. Back to a time when growing up was the most painful and exciting time of our lives.
