Synopsis

Peter Falk stars in this drama as Abel Shaddick, a lonely, bitter, Jewish deli owner in a small upstate New York town. It’s 1969, but Abel has remained grief-stricken since the death of his only son in WWII. His only family is a ne’er-do-well nephew (Andrew McCarthy) who sticks him with the responsibility of an inner-city kid named Herman Washington (Aaron Meeks), who’s part of a program to give urban children a chance to experience rural life. The crusty Abel resists the idea at first, but then begins to bond with Herman when it’s revealed that, tragically, they have more in common than either realized.

Dove Review

A moving portrait of life and loss, “A Storm In Summer” is both instructive and entertaining.

Content Description

Two expletives, one from a child; bigotry is addressed; a boy loses a loved one; thugs threaten the old man and the boy, but the police show up before anyone is harmed.
