Didn't You Hear... (1983)
- Summaries (2)
Kevin is wandering through the confused haze that most college students pass through at one time or another: lectures that make little - if any - sense, pranks by the fraternities and sororities, deep yet meaningless discussions on philosophy with ones friends. Through all of this, Kevin passes in and out of a dream-like fantasy world, in which he and his friends sail the ship 'Queen of Sheba' to a variety of islands, with natives both friendly and hostile.
Kevin is a sensitive college freshman growing more and more alienated from his studies and his fellow students. Rowdy, sex-obsessed Sparrow is his only friend. He has no girlfriend, and suffers humiliation at the hands of attractive Paige when she appears half-naked in his dorm room as part of a sorority initiation. Gradually, Kevin withdraws from reality into a dream world of his own creation. There, he and his friends discover a deserted ship, christen it "The Queen of Sheba" and sail off on an adventure of discovery. Sparrow and Paige both become members of Kevin's fantasy "pirate band". "I just don't understand why people can't play forever" Kevin asks Paige in his dream-but he ultimately learns that even a world of fantasy can hold it's own sad realities...
