After antiwar activists Annie and Arthur Pope blew up a napalm lab in 1971, they became lifelong fugitives. They and their children have stayed just one step ahead of the law, running from state to state, job to job, identity to identity. But now elder son Danny wants to stop running from a past not his. And to do so, he might never see his on-the-lam family again. Winner of the Golden Globe Best Screenplay award.

Excellent movie. It depicts the futility of being involved in radical causes. More importantly, it shows how unwittingly selfish some parents can be in raising their children, yet their children go to great lengths to please their parents anyway. Great screenplay and direction. The cast is wonderful, particularly River Phoenix.
