The year is 1964.

In the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York the area is under change with many of the white homeowners and businesses moving out. African Americans along with Hispanic immigrants are replacing them. The neighborhood is economically depressed. There are many confrontations between the ethnic groups especially in the schools.

Nick Colombo is a teenager lured into his cousin's gang and becomes involved with a robbery of an automobile belonging to the high school coach. The entire gang along with Nick is arrested for the crime. All the members except Nick are sent to jail. Nick is incarcerated at a Juvenile Detention Center, where he must spend the next three years in isolation due to threats upon his life.

In 1967, Nick is released and back at his old high school where he is ostracized by most of the student body. His only friends are Hispanic and African Americans, the exception being the head cheerleader Kimberly O'Donnell who is attracted to Nick. The only problem is her boyfriend Brett Dickerson who is captain of the football team is insanely jealous and threatens both Kimberly and Nick.

Kimberly and Nick soon fall in love to the distain of her father, Joseph O'Donnell, who views Nick as a criminal and bars Kimberly from ever seeing him again. She rebels against his restrictions. At the Halloween dance, Nick and Kimberly leave the gym and spend the night together. Arriving home early the next morning Kimberly is confronted by her enraged father. He immediately enrolls her in a boarding school in upstate New York. Before she is to leave, her brother Peter arranges a meeting between Kimberly and Nick at the local church where Nick says goodbye to her.

A few months pass and Nick is despondent over the lack of communication between Kimberly and him. The last letter he receives is very short and he becomes desperate to see her, believing she is dating another person. Without any money to make the trip, he plots a robbery at the local pawn shop where he worked in 1964 and tries to enlist his friend Cordero in the crime. Cordero will have nothing to do with the scheme and tells Kimberly's Brother Peter, of Nick's foolish actions. Peter contacts Kimberly and she arranges to return to Brooklyn desperate to stop Nick from committing the crime. Nick is told of her return by Peter and is relieved knowing she still loves him.

Upon her return they spend the night together at Nicks home, where they pledge their undying love for one another.

Film Music

Film music is as old as cinema itself. Years before synchronized sound became the norm, projected moving images were shown to musical accompaniment, whether performed by a lone piano player or a hundred-piece orchestra. Today film music has become its own industry, indispensable to the marketability of movies around the world.
Film Music: A Very Short Introduction is a compact, lucid, and thoroughly engaging overview written by one of the leading authorities on the subject. After opening with a fascinating analysis of the music from a key sequence in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs, Kathryn Kalinak introduces readers not only to important composers and musical styles but also to modern theoretical concepts about how and why film music works. Throughout the book she embraces a global perspective, examining film music in Asia and the Middle East as well as in Europe and the United States. Key collaborations between directors and composers--Alfred Hitchcock and Bernard Herrmann, Akira Kurosawa and Fumio Hayasaka, Federico Fellini and Nino Rota, to name only a few--come under scrutiny, as do the oft-neglected practices of the silent film era. She also explores differences between original film scores and compilation soundtracks that cull music from pre-existing sources.
As Kalinak points out, film music can do many things, from establishing mood and setting to clarifying plot points and creating emotions that are only dimly realized in the images. This book illuminates the many ways it accomplishes those tasks and will have its readers thinking a bit more deeply and critically the next time they sit in a darkened movie theater and music suddenly swells as the action unfolds onscreen.
