In this tender look at lost innocence, two 14 year olds (often played by older actors) meet on an abandoned pier. Cherry likes to dream about her merchant marine father who pursues the Great Red Whale, a creature that spouts the cherry soda water he brings her. Little Banjo, a runaway, shatters her fantasy by pointing out that she doesn't have a father and that her mother is a prostitute.
